5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

In tower, can see glaciers, city, water. Beautiful on a clear day. This is a must-see landmark. The history is interesting, too.

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Must go to the top! The view is huge, all of central Reykjavik. The church itself is worth spending time in, has a real presence.

“Better inside then outside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

From the outside it looks like a gigantic rocket, but it is very elegent from the inside. You can take the elevator up which is a couple of euros, but even if you did not, it is quite something from the inside.

“Breathtaking views - literally!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We went on what must have been one of the windiest days of the year. Literally couldnt stand up straight at ground level so when you go 8 floors up to the top of the church you can imagine how windy it was! Took our breath away! However, thoroughly enjoyed it. Great views of the city and the church is spectacular inside.

“fantastic organ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This church is striking from the outside but once you go in walk down the aisle and then turn around to look at the organ, it is immense!! You can go up the main tower and there are excellent views from the top.
