Lögberg or Law Rock is the place where Alþingi was first held in 930AD. It is debatable where Lögberg was exactly located, but it is believed to have been on a rock pedestal where the flag pole is now located. The other theory is that Lögberg was located inside Almannagjá rift by the rock face.
Lögberg was the focal point of Alþingi and from there the law speaker could be heard clearly. And from here all speaches were held and significant news were "broadcasted" from here. The law speaker was the most powerful man of Alþingi.
Address: Þingvellir, South-Iceland
Directions: On the easter rim of Almannagjá rift. Look for the flag-pole.
