The outside is quite impressive with the spire leading up to a clock tower. The inside is stark and relatively empty, possibly reflecting the harshness of the Icelandic landscape. The bright spot is the massive organ. Uniquely, there are windows behind the altar, letting in...More

Even in rainy weather, this church is worth a stop simply for the views from the tower. The interior of the church is very plain and filled with light, although there is a nice organ. Pay the $10 US to take the elevator to the...More

One of those "must see" stops in Reykjavik and it size and location dominate the city. Soaring columns and very different than churches you might be used to seeing in Europe in that it is very plain, totally unadorned but beautiful in its simplicity. Organ...More

It is different than the churches that one is used to (in Europe). The inside and outside architecture and decorations are far from baroque style. Definitely worth having a look at and reflecting upon its simple design.

Majestic church on a hill in Reykjavik.Simple interior with huge organ pipes. For a small fee you can take an elevator, then climb 2 flights of stairs to have a gorgeous panoramic view of the city and beyond.

It is worth a stop by this church, it us interesting design both inside and out. For 1000ISK ( (June 2018) you go up in the tower and get a great view over Reykjavik, best done on a clear(er) day

Another cool, and free thing to check out in Reykjavík. When we went there were people dressed in character and playing a form of tag on the front lawn, it was riveting to watch. The inside of the Church was beautiful. Majestic ceilings, and an...More

This church dominates the Reykjavik skyline. It is by far the tallest structure in the city. You can take an elevator (there is a charge) to the best view over the city. We didn’t take it because it was very cloudy at the time we...More

Truly an inspiring church. Soaring ceilings, huge and ornate organ, bells, flying buttresses like you would see on more gothic style churches. After touring the Baltic area this is a major change in style.

This is an awesome building architecturally yet I can see it can be a peaceful spiritual place. The church is so tall its reflection can be seen on the City Hall pond more than 6 blocks away. It is a must-see sight in Reykjavik.

As per previous reviews, very limited parking. Better to park elsewhere and walk up.
