This is the most awe inspiring church it is absolutely huge standing at 73 metres. It is worth going up the tower at approximately £3,00 each was a bargin and took some great photos from the top.

We went to Hallgrimskirkja intending to just see the view from the tower. But the interior was beautiful too. The form was very similar to traditional gothic cathedrals, but was much more minimalistic, giving a very pleasing modern look. The organ pipes were a wonder in themselves, working as part of the architecture. Cafe Loki across the square gives great views of the outside with traditional Icelandic food.

Got there just before Sunday mass. 600 kr each to use the lift to the top. Not as cold as I thought. Fantastic views especially was the moon was visible at 11am. Just was we were leaving the bells rung out, no need for coffee after this.

Great overview!! Never knew you could climb the tower, so don't miss out on this experience because you'll like it (guaranteed)

Especially liked the unusual architecture and the 360 degrees views from the tower. Watched a winter dawn break over the city. It is excellent that the very high tower has a lift allowing access for all. Exciting if a little deafening being near the clock face when it strikes the hour! Did not dislike anything
