New lighthouse at Reykjavík Harbour

From 1945 until the 2000‘s the towerlight at the Maritime college had the purpose of guiding ships into the Reykjavík harbour.

Unfortunately the buildings that were then built below the college in the beginning of the 21st century, were too high for the tower light to get through. But now, this new lighthouse can continue the pivotal work of being a guiding light for all the ships coming into the harbour. It‘s also an ideal place to visit when walking along the shoreline, being just a few steps away from the famous Sun Voyager!
