The Old Town (Reyn)

Tórshavn’s old town, consisting of Reyn and Undir Ryggi, is home to two dozen or so small, black-tarred wooden houses with white-framed windows and grass roofs. People still call these 14th century houses their homes today. Stroll along charming narrow winding lanes and passageways and experience a wonderful mixture of old and new.


Families still live in these cute houses, so please respect the privacy of the residents. Do not take pictures through the windows and of people, without asking for permission first.
