The window to the world
For centuries Icelanders were isolated from the outside world and utterly dependent on maritime traffic for all imports and travel. Reykjavík harbour, where Austurhöfn now sits, was the beating heart of the fledgling city. Through here came foreign and exotic new ideas and influences, and this legacy still is evident in the vibrant and cosmopolitan nature of the neighbourhood. Fine dining and high culture are in abundance within walking distance, as is the very latest in contemporary art and music, not to mention the famous Reykjavík night life.
