About Hofdi House, Reykjavik

Even though this historic house can be rented for exhibitions and private events, it’s not open to the public, so you can only view it from outside. Built in 1909, it was the home of poet and businessman Einar Benediktsson, and the spot from where Iceland’s first international radio communique was sent. More importantly it’s the location of the meeting between presidents Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev that began the end of the cold war. Nearby, you’ll find a statue of Einar Benediktsson by Asmundur Sveinsson. And it’s said the house is also on top of a Viking burial site, and that it might be haunted.
