Don't bother going to the top

You can go inside and go to the top, but when I went it was quite busy and was an entrance fee. I don't think it's necessary as the outside of the church is what's really the most... read more

You can go inside and go to the top, but when I went it was quite busy and was an entrance fee. I don't think it's necessary as the outside of the church is what's really the most interesting. Amazing architecture. Waffle stand nearby is amazing as well

We were here on a 3 day holiday sightseeing, and this place is awesome, the interior was just beautiful, as a photographer i was very pleased to spend a lot of time in here. We were lucky to be in here when a lady was having her lesson on the organ, fabulous sound. Just down the road about 2 minutes... More

Despite the many visitors this Modern Church remained very Peaceful. Also enjoyed the Minimalist interior and the Comfortable pews. Magnificent views from top of the tower but only accessible via a 900K lift

The inside is even more amazing, didn't see the inside at night, but in the day wow, the whole place shines, with light even though it's very dull outside.

A good place to come visit if you are traveling through the city. You can walk around take photos of the outside and the sculptures, but also walk inside to explore if they allow. They allowed us to, only because a ceremony had ended. I think the best time for photos was at night time because the lights lit up... More

must see in Reykjavik - catch an organ concert and climb to the tower for unparalleled views of the city and the seaside.

Beautiful architecture, but very simple; a gorgeous organ & a couple statues. We paid $8 each to take the "tour" to the top which was disappointing. There is a large board you could read at the top, but I'd have appreciated an expert providing unique tid-bits.

We went on our first morning in Reykjavik. If you are staying in the centre of town, it's not far to walk to. You don't have to pay to enter the church - only if you want to go up the tower which does have some spectacular views on a clear day. There is a little church shop as well... More
