Gröndal‘s House in Focus in October

At the corner of Fischersund and Mjóstræti, in the oldest part of Reykjavík, is a small red house with big history.
This house is called Gröndal‘s House after its former owner, the writer, artist and scholar Benedikt Gröndal, who lived there from 1888 until his death in 1907.
The house is owned by the City of Reykjavík and run as a literary house and residency by the Reykjavík UNESCO City of Literature.
In October 2017, Gröndal and the House will be in focus with various events, both at the house and elsewhere.
Admission is free to Gröndal‘s House for the whole month of October. Opening hours are Thursdays to Sundays from 1 – 5 pm.
