Harpa has a variety of concert halls and rooms inside. The building is very contemporary both inside and out. I definitely recommend going to a concert here if you can.

During the day, the building is open and you can get something to drink at the small cafe as well as use their free wifi.

Harpa is a true highlight of Reykjavik!

The place is full of surprises, beautifully designed and great to have a feel of how active the city is on all arts. A must visit while in the city.

Amazing building which was originally financed by the bankers prior to the financial crash. The people of Reykjavik determined to see this venue complete, proved their resilience by seeing it through to completion. The views are spectacular as is the building itself. The building was inspired by the natural landscape of Iceland. There are many beautiful assembly rooms which are adaptable for various events taking place at the same time. We did a backstage tour prior to attending a concert of Icelandic music which we thoroughly enjoyed. There is no charge to visit the Harpa, only if you are going to an event.
