Culture Walk – Following the Architect’s Path

Wednesday June 7th at 8 p.m., museologist Ólöf Bjarnadóttir, will lead a walk through the town of Hafnarfjörður, following the path of State Architect Guðjón Samúelsson (1887-1950). Many houses designed by the architect, at various stages of his career, can be found in the town, being among the best known buildings in Hafnarfjörður. During the walk, we will take a look at some of Guðjón’s creations and get to know their history. The group will set out from Flensborg, walking down Skúlaskeið and the centre of Hafnarfjörður, ending at Hafnarborg.

The town of Hafnarfjörður offers a programme of special health and culture walks every Wednesday evening through the summer. The walks usually last for one hour, starting at 8 p.m. The walks are a collaborative project by Hafnarborg, The Hafnarfjörður Museum, The Hafnarfjörður Library and The Health Town Hafnarfjörður. Participation is free of charge and everyone is welcome. The event is in Icelandic.
