  1. What an interesting post! I hadn’t thought about Iceland during WWII. It’s cool that you got to explore the bunkers! I think I would be too scared to go in there. Not sure why, but it just sounds a bit creepy. What a strange place to party, too!

  2. This is really interesting. I had no idea, that Iceland was even obviously that involved in 2nd WW times. We have been to Iceland and Reykjavik 2 years ago and were impressed but we totally missed to check out these relics. I can imagine this must have been a very special experience, I love to see such old and historical places, in Germany there also a lot of them (of course) – always very impressive and interesting to see them.

    I never explored this area in Reykjavik though it does look interesting, I never realised they had bunkers. I visited in March so it was still a bit too cold to want to be outside for too long!! Such a great country with so much to see and do, hopefully I will get back there one day in summer so I can explore more of it 🙂

    Oh didn’t now it would have anything related to WWII! We are looking into going this summer but not sure we will have time to check it out. It is so interesting though. At least for now we are happy to experience is through your eyes and words!

  5. I’ve never been to this part of Reykjavik. It’s a shame because being the history buff that I like to think I am, this would be the perfect spot to explore. Maybe that is a reason to consider going back!

  6. Its really nice to see a different side of Reykijavic and I had no idea about their involvement in WW2! I can’t wait to get to Iceland itself – and my list of things to see and do and is growing with every post I read – including this one! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Visiting and exploring the historical monuments is definitely on list in any destination we visit. We had no idea Reykjavik has a wonderful site dedicated to the WWII site. Walking through the bunkers and the shelters sounds like a wonderful experience.

    I’ve read so much about Reykjavik, Iceland, I’ve even visited and stayed there but had no idea of any world war 2 remains. The Fort and bunkers up there are incredible, I didn’t even know Iceland was involved in World War 2. You photographed the fort and view of the city from up there beautifully.

      Thank you! I was starting to question myself but we read the signs and they said it was from World War 2! Really cool to see and an amazing view of the city from the top

  9. Walking through a city is the best way to see it! I can’t believe what you came across on your journey. I love how you stumbled across everything and ended up seeing the signs afterwards!
