An impressive landmark to see in Reykjavik, and doesn't take long to stop by and have a quick look / get a photo. Would recommend going up the spire - only 1000kr (around £7 GBP) - for really great views over the entire city. Didn't...More

A beautiful building, simple and elegant. Everything a place of worship should be, with none of the trappings of ostentatious wealth on display that could be better used elsewhere. The choir was rehearsing for a service when we visited, and the experience was wonderful.

Lovely church and good if you like a bit of history about the building too. Great views though the space to see out it quite limited as it has bars up. Quite a few steps so one for the easily mobile! Worth a look though.

Lovely view from the tower, but being modern, you don't get the sense of awe you get with old cathedrals. A beautiful iconic building from the outside, but other than the view I personally didn't love the experience (as a non-religious visitor)

This is an amazing place to visit, the interesting thing about the church apart from its sleek modern lines is the lack of stain glass windows, only a couple of beautiful examples. The organ is incredible and we were fortunate to be there whilst the...More

This stunning church dominates the city. Highly visible from all over the city, it forms a fantastic reference point. Far beyond that, it is a stunning piece of architecture. From the outside it is iconic, but go inside and see the internal structure to encounter...More

Take the lift to the top. Awesome views. A bit of a wait for the lift as it only carries 6 people at a time. Well worth the wait though.

We visited this church on a freezing cold, snowy day. It is stunning. After looking around the inside which is beautiful and free, we paid to go up to the top and the views were worth the 1000 ISK fee. There is a lift that...More

If the above doesn't help just try their website hallgrimskirkja.is Opt for the English (unless you read Icelandic) and go to the information tab where you'll find events.
