“Visited this on a very windy day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

It was worth it and fantastically simple. This wonderful church had a choir practising in it when we went, the acoustics were great. Nice place to be reflective and I lit a candle to celebrate my grandmother's 100th birthday

“Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Very high and very windy but only 600kr for a fantastic view over the city and beyond. Worth doing for the birds eye view. The church itself is very simple.

“Lovely church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

A really lovely church to look at and around. Cheap to get a lift to the top for a fantastic view of the city. We used it as a starting point before exploring Reykjavik- it gave a good overview of the city and of where to go!

“Cool Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

Church looked pretty impressive framed against the sunset. For some reason this building reminded me a lot of the Chrysler building in New York. The view at the top is well worth a look, as you can see pretty much all of the town from up there.
