Nuuk is Greenland’s largest city and capital and administrative center. The city has a population of about 15,000 (about 1/4 of the island’s population). sometimes accused of that almost never have any sun, because of the high mountains around the city. There is neither a car or railway linking the towns of Greenland. The only available modes of travel is by boat or plane. Hiking is less practical and more strenuous, but quite appropriate.

Nuuk has an airport which is located about 4 km northeast of the city. A must is the pub “Takuss” next to the library. At about 6 to 7 visits you will probably be the only tourist here. Enjoy the atmosphere, but it is quite expensive, a large beer costs about 60 Danish kroner. The old colonial town is located on the east coast side of the city center. Here is the statue of Hans Egede , Hans Egede-house and church , Tourism Office, National Museum and the Santa Claus post office and mailbox.

As Nuuk is a small city (about 15.000 inhabitants), there is virtually no crime, no slums and no areas you should avoid. You can go anywhere, anytime and feel safe, just use common sense.
