A stop at the church and climb to the tower is an absolute must. You pay a small fee to the church to use the elevator to get up to the top of the clock tower. It is so worth it. We had a beautiful clear day and could see for miles. The houses and shops looked so a,axing with the colored roofs and painted houses. You get a different view (water, mountains, village, etc.) from each side of the tower. It really allows you to appreciate the beauty of Reykjavik. The church itself is also gorgeous and worth a visit.

Enormous and impressive architecture - can be seen from quite far away. Inside is minimalist and quietly lovely, we were lucky enough to hear the organ being played during our visit. Take the trip up the tower for fabulous views of Reykjavik and the mountains.

When you are in Reykjavick it is well worth 30-40 minutes to visit the elegant interior, impressive organ and scenic veiw from the tower of this dramatic modern church. The exterior, which I also like very much, is a constant landmark around central Reykjavic.

A beautiful church, both inside and out. It costs 600 per person to take the lift to the top of the tower and the views are fantastic. The lights at the top of the church at night are brilliant as you can get your bearings from pretty much anywhere in Reykjavik
