Lichtenau - Greenland

Lichtenau lies in the Lichtenau Fjord, close to the southwestern tip of Greenland. Visit the former Moravian (Hernhuters) mission station with its period buildings, fenced gardens and many graves. The site gives a vivid picture of the daily life of the missionary community in the 19th century. The Lichtenau Fjord branches into two parts at the end, in one of which is Greenland's largest waterfall, Qorlortorsuaq, and also the country's only sea trout farm. The ruins of a Norse manor lie in the other branch, Sioralik.
