This is a true world wonder. A must see when in Iceland! Pay about $7 per person to go up and see the view from the top. It's stunning and beautiful.

A great statement church, interesting mix of traditional design with strong modern elements. Very stark inside, which I think adds to the focus on the purpose of the building. Highlights include a trip up the tower with the best view over Reykjavik, and the huge main organ.

On the subject of music, the church has great acoustics. Keep an eye out for the concerts that are held there.

We were lucky to get up to the top on a lovely sunny day, giving us a great view over the city. Be prepared for the bells!

An interesting church in the centre of Reykjavik offering superb views all around and very cheap to go up.
there isn't much to the church itself though so your only really going for the views

To be honest, I was not very impressed by this relatively new building. Since it is strategically located in this town and it has a view point to this town. Do have a stroll in the evening before dinner for the beautiful peaceful evening view from high. There is a small fee to get up the tower and do ask for the student price if you are a student! But it is not wheelchair friendly because u have to climb a staircase upon arrive.
