“Great View of the Entire City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2015 NEW

We stayed just down the street from the church in a VRBO. It is so much different from all the other churches we saw in the small towns and villages which we couldn't stop taking pictures of. Each one was in a beautiful setting. This one is worth a trip with the to the top to get a great view of Reykjavik.

“What a view! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2015 NEW

This was so good mostly because it's so unlike any other church I've visited - no stained glass, no opulence, just incredibly simple and calm inside whilst being striking from the outside. The view from the top is well worth the 800kr, you can see all of Reykjavik and beyond!

“Great place to start a city visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2015 NEW

Quite a stunning building although not overly complicated in design. The square is a great place to start a walking tour of the city of Reykjavik. We were unable to get up to the tower because the shop was closed, even though it said it was supposed to be open. The whole town seems to be like this so it didn't surprise us. A nice piece of Nordic history.

“unique and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2015 NEW

An amazing building, it looks modern but built in the 1940s. Reminiscent of the churches of the Mormon church in style, this fantastic church has fantastic views from the top. The pristine church hall looks almost untouched, and is very different from the churches in the UK
