“Unbeatable Views of Reykjavik”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We paid our entrance fee on the honor system and then took the elevator to the viewing deck. Despite the strong winds, the 360 degree views from above Reykjavik were well worth the cold temperatures. The interior of the sanctuary is wonderfully understated although the organ's pipes were under renovation so we didn't have the full effect. When you are finished, make sure to walk down the hill to Laugavegur and do some shopping.

“Great Architecture with views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

From the outside its impressive - from the inside such clean functional lines. But up the tower are the best 360 degree views of Reykjavik.

“Fab view and easy parking for town centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

We had a pleasant surprise to have a lift up to the top to take in the great views of Reykjavik. An added bonus was lots of free parking and an easy stroll down to the shops.

“Church on the hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This church can be seen from pretty much everywhere in Reykjavik and is definitely worth a visit. The view from the top is 360 degree and is amazing, especially if you visit on a clear day.
