In historical surroundings

Restaurant Egede is situated in Ilimanaq’s old colonial managers residence from 1741. It one of Greenland’s oldest houses. The house was build by the well-known missionary and tradesman Paul Egede - son of Hans Egede who came to Greenland as the very first missionary.

In 2017 the building was renovated by Realdania By & Byg. They have won the renowned Europe Nostra Award for this renovation. Realdania who is behind Realdania By & Byg is also responsible for Ilulissat Icefiord Center. The renovation has been done with focus on the building’s original materials and colours.
