Cruises from Qaqortoq
Qaqortoq is a town in the Kujalleq municipality in southern Greenland. It is the most populous town in the region and the fourth largest town in the country. The oldest standing building of Qaqortoq is a black-tarred log building from 1797. The building was designed by royal Danish architect Kirkerup, pre-assembled in Denmark, shipped in pieces to Qaqortoq, and then reassembled.
The town is also home to the oldest fountain in Greenland, Mindebronden, built in 1927. A tourist attraction, the fountain depicts whales spouting water from their blowholes. The building that now houses the Qaqortoq Museum was originally the town's blacksmith's shop.
