Located close to the centre of town and opposite the famous cafe Loki, this landmark has a beautiful view and is highly accessible. Hopefully you can time your visit with an organ performance.

Everyone visits this site, but if you time it just right, you might also be able to hear a lovely organ concert for free!

Glad we went. Got a great view of the city and interesting houses - especially the one with the grass roof! Teenage boys weren't as interested in the architecture or the history as they were the view.

It is a simple but beautiful church. When I was there, there was someone playing the organ, added a lot to the visit.

Worth a visit for the pictures. The design appears pretty unique and is apparently based on the rock formations in iceland. Can get some nice pics from various angles but I suggest earlier is better as there is understandably a lot of tourist traffic here...More

A friend recommended starting a Reykjavik sojourn with a visit to this church, which was great advice! By chance there was an organist rehearsing when we arrived, so we were treated to gorgeous music in the beautiful nave. Then we went up to the bell...More

It's a beautiful Church. The architecture of this church is very cool and elegant. Inside is simple and beautiful with clean lines. We enjoyed sitting and spending some time inside. I would say it's definitely one of the highlights of Reykjavik!!

This building is a landmark in the centre of the city and looks down on all the surrounding buildings.

This church is certainly different -- very otherworldly on the outside and spare and almost stark on the inside. As such, it makes a nice contrast to the gothic and baroque churches that abound on the continent. Well worth a visit.

It is only open until 9pm. We got there right when it opened-less tourists.

You can't get the ticket to the top in advance, but you likely wouldn't need to anyway. We didn't have to wait at all. It was quick, easy, and an amazing experience!
