How Do I Get to Kongaminni Obelisk from Torshavn Port?

Torvshawn Port is a 15- to 20-minute walk from the Kongaminni Obelisk, also known as the King's Monument. The Kongaminni Obelisk is in the center of a grassy area between Eystari Ringvegur and Hoyviksvegur roads. Head north on Torsgola for about 4 blocks until you reach Bokjarabrekka. At Bokjarabrekka, make a right and walk about 2.5 blocks until you reach Eystari Ringvegur. During this short stretch, you should be able to view the obelisk. Once you reach the grassy area, walk a short path to reach the top. The obelisk is easy to identify because of the golden "1874" and the royal emblem.
