One of the hot springs in the Geysir area is called Konungshver or The King´s hot spring or The Royal hot spring. It is in the northwest end of the Geysir area above Geysir. It is named after the Danish king Christian IX, who visited Geysir in 1874 and was back then the king of Iceland.

Its shaft is closed by stones which block it, so it doesn´t spout.

If you look at the photos I have taken there through the years you will notice how the hot spring changes in colour.
