I suppose that this is one of the true real "must see's" in Reykjavik. The interior of the church is quite austere, but peaceful. The main reason to visit is to take the elevator to the top of the steeple for a view of the city. The whole town is laid out at your feet, but dress warm! The wind can be fierce and rain comes in through the windows (no glass).

Ok, ok, it's just a church, but if you're going to Reykjavik, you have to check it out. It's like going to NYC, and not checking out the Empire State, or Paris, and not having a peek at the Eiffel Tower, you know what I mean. The Church itself is austere and simple, but it is simultaneously grand and beautiful. Definitely worth a look. Beautiful architechture.

The view from the top is unbeatable..It is the highest point in town, added by the cleanness of air enhancing the unbeliavable visibility of the surrounding areas miles and miles ahead, you will love it..If the weather is sunny, the colors are fantastic..

My husband and I went to Reykjavik just to see the 2005 fireworks. They were worth every penny we spent. Spectacular! We asked some locals where to go to have the best view and they all said the same thing. Hallgrimskirkja Church. We were not disappointed. We stood in the plaza of the church, next to the statue of Leif Ericson. In any direction we looked the sky was filled with beautiful fireworks over the entire city. Looking at the church's cross with lovely lights bursting forth in a multitude of colors was actually very heavenly! Before we left Reykjavik we returned to the church and walked about. It is very lovely and a "must see" while in Iceland.
