No doubt this is a must visit landmark. The view from the top is excellent and gives a wonderful panorama view of Reykjavik. Perfect photo op on a clear days. The architecture is also interesting

“Great architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

A beautiful modern church inspired by the Icelandic basalt columns. The placement of the church is very nice and the Leif Eriksson monument outside is worth a visit as well. The area offer good parking.

Stunning from the outside and breathtakingly beautiful on the inside. This is a major attraction in the city of Reykjavik.

“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The church itself, a rather barren concrete edifice, may not be to everybody's liking, but the view from the steeple (accessible by lift at 700 kr) is definitely worth the walk up the hill.
