With a population of approx. 3,500 inhabitants, Qaqortoq is the largest city in South Greenland and is the main city in Kujalleq municipality.
This is a city in rapid development.
Next to the municipality building, a new courthouse was recently opened.
The road to a yet to be opened new airport has been completed.
The high school and trade school were recently combined to form Campus Kujalleq.
The city is full of public art and colourful personalities around the streets.
The few restaurants and cafes are well-attended as people catch up on each other's lives. This is a very social place.
As with many cities in South Greenland, there are plenty of opportunities for short or long walks with varying levels of difficulty.
A short boat trip from Qaqortoq will take you to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Hvalsø Church Ruin and the beautiful Uunartoq hot springs (bring your swimsuit), as well as the inland fjord system. This is a very attractive region to travel by boat.
