Streching for the sky Hallgrimskirkja can be see from all over town, but as you walk towards it it is still an awe inspiring sight.
Free entry but lift to top is 700isk (about £3.50) and is well worth it for fantastic 360 views. Nicely lit up at night too !

The best view in Iceland if you are willing to pay for it. Religion is profit I say but shouldn't be.

This iconic building was opposite our hotel, so left it until our last day to pay it a visit. What a stunning building. Absolutely a must!!. The building is huge with a high graduated tower which can be seen throughout Reykjavic. For a small fee you can take the lift up to the top of the tower and the views are stunning. You have a panoramic view of the town and surrounding area. The church is open daily and although it has many visitors it does not feel crowded. Well worth the visit

The church looks like it is about to take off to the heavens. it is shaped like a rocket. It is very simple yet stunning inside with an extremely loud organ. There is a lift (for a small fee) to the top of the tower then a few steps. The views are breathtaking. The bells! The bells! On the hour they deafen you if you are at the top.

Our hotel was right across the road and the Hallgrimskirkja was our view from the window. It is a very impressive building which lights up at night. when we were there it was a music festival week so during the evening a concert took place, during the afternoon they were rehearsing and the acoustics in the magnificent hall was amazing. Up the lift to the bell tower, there are some round windows then up to the top, be prepared it is very windy in the bell tower but the view of Reykjavik are stunning, it is so pretty, with all the different coloured roof tops and snow capped mountains in the distance.
