This is the big city so enjoy it. The Municipality building is nice and has nice artwork. There are shuttles outside. Bundle up.

Was in Nuuk in April and while walking around we saw the church and decided to check it out. Very cute and very Nuuk, if that makes sense. Blended well in the surrounding and it was great to see it.

A piece of history not to be missed when visiting Nuuk - part of the ongoing culture. In the heart of Old Nuuk, the church was built entirely of wood, between 1848 and 1849.

There aren’t many things to see in Nuuk, but this one should be on the list. Unfortunately when I went there the church was closed (so plan in advance); it still was worth the visit, the building is beautiful as it is the surrounding area....More

A calm and peaceful building that we were lucky to see. We tried the door and it was unlocked by the lady who organises confirmations and she let us look inside and feel the atmosphere. It was a short visit and very worthwhile.

I happened to be there on Sunday Morning so it was packed with locals but it is a very lovely building. Of you're in Nuuk, I would suggest going to see it but I wouldn't go out of your way to.

By Greenland standards this is an impressive building. It's peaceful and tranquil inside. It's a harsh place to live and shows a lot of comittment by the locals to build it.
