A beautiful church sitting on the top of a hill in downtown Reykjavik. An impressive organ and lots of comfortable seating is inside. An elevator to take you to the top of the spire is worth the extra cost for the 360 degree views of the surrounding area.

Take a trip to the top of this church, you can't go wrong with the views of the whole city! Also, try to find out when the organ will be played and stay for a performance!

The view from the top is wonderful in all directions, especially toward the bay. Lines for the elevator can be long but worth the wait. We attended a Christmas concert in the sanctuary, and the acoustics were amazing.

It is a very nice churc and free to visit. But to go up to the tower, it costs 900 ISK but it worth it because of the view.

It's free to go in but if you want to take the lift to the top you have to pay. We didn't bother as the weather was so awful!

This church is worth a visit. It is inspiring. I did not go up in the tower, but I understand that is the thing to do.

In Reykjavik, make this one of your stops. It is easily walkable from the town center. At night the tower lights being such a sense of peace. Inside is an architectural marvel. Attend a Sunday service to hear the renowned organ.
