Cool building with the colours of the Northern Lights flashing across it. Not much of interest inside unless you have something pre booked.

Didn't see a performance. A handy place to take a break after visiting sights to the East. Cafe, shop, information and free public toilets. The architecture didn't do much for me. Rather uninspiring.

Beautiful facility and the center of the Arts Festival. Greatly enjoyed the Daniel Lismore exhibition. 3-D movies in basement. Should not be missed on any Iceland trip😎

I was first intrigued by this building after watching the Black Mirror episode, “Crocodile.” Parking and entrance to look around are free. The concert hall has 5 floors that each offer a unique and picturesque view of the honeycomb structure.

For me, the top 1 of the city center. Beautiful interior! We did no do it but I can imagine that the guided tour is worth it as well as going to the main concert hall. Restaurant we tried but in big group... was ok.

We’re staying in Reykjavik this week, and I feel fortunate to have a view of Harpa from my hotel. It’s a gorgeous space and there are lighting displays at night. I’ve also seen two shows there. The performance halls are beautiful, too. Check it out!!

I attended a conference here over a few days, culminating in a dinner, and this was the perfect venue. It was clean, comfortable with easy to navigate layout. The architecture was stunning- the outside reminded me of fish scales glistening in the sunlight. Free to...More

We stopped here for a look around and used their cafe for coffee and a piece of cake. It was delicious and the service was excellent.

If you get a chance to see the moving lights at night, you will love it. It's a beautiful facility and just wandering around inside and going up to the top was so pretty. I wish we'd been able to see a performance here.
