The Nordic House, Torshavn

Admire the Scandinavian architecture at The Nordic House, considered one of the most beautiful buildings in the Nordic region. With a mission to promote the local history and culture, the institution was established in 1983 under the supervision of the Nordic Council of Ministers. Designed by architect Ola Steen, the deep green building resembles a dragon on the outside, matching the reptilian design of the spacious interior hall. Sit back at the onsite cafe and soak in the playful atmosphere of the architectural elements, whose materials were sourced almost exclusively from the Faroe Islands.

  • Building visions not of so much from the outside, but the inside is really impressive. A long curved time lead both up and down in the room and there is a beautiful theater area, located freely in space, used beautiful golden wood, fantastic effect. There is good visibility to the sheep flock in metal outside, from the huge floor-to-ceiling Windows.

  • It is situated one of our favorite places in Tórshavn, above the town with good views. The architecture is interesting and yet restrained. Inside, it is a place of peace, wonderful to relax or to protect against rain. The staff are exceptionally friendly. There are smaller exhibitions or concerts, a small friendly Café and free many Scandinavian newspapers. There are always enough seating and a small shop selling art prints and souvenirs. I'll keep coming back.

  • Beautiful place! The restaurant proposes a delicious and qualitative vegetarian buffet for an affordable price. Must see!
  • Had a photo gallery at the moment, but seems to arrange all sorts of stuff. Beautiful inside, free, and nice staff. Dunno about the shows and café though.
  • Nice architecture, fine building with good facilities and delicious cake
  • A trendy cultural nordic house with a small café and free WiFi. Events, plays and concerts can take place here according to schedules, so keep an eye on it.
  • Simply a nice hotel in front of the traditional harbor of the Faroese capital.
