Where is Völundur? – Countdown to Christmas

Hafnarborg is counting down the days till Christmas by showing the Icelandic Christmas calendar Hvar er Völundur?  (Where is Völundur?) between 4 and 5 p.m. during the holiday season.

The television series was produced by RÚV in 1996 and has become a holiday classic. In the series, Felix and Gunni look for the toymaker Völundur who makes all the best Christmas gifts. During the search, the two get into a lot of adventures, as they get closer and closer to Völundur.

The creator of the series is artist Þorvaldur Þorsteinsson, whose works are now on view at the museum as a part of a retrospective exhibition.

Families with children are especially invited to attend the screenings, but each episode of the series will be shown on repeat between 4 and 5 p.m. each day. Since the museum is closed on Tuesdays, two episodes will however be shown on Wednesdays. Entry to the museum is free, as always.
