Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This small Church is located in downtown Reykjavik, on the main square, next door to Icelandic Parliament.
Domkirkjan is in fact the main Lutheran Cathedral of Iceland, not the Hallgrimskirkja.
The interiors are more beautiful and decorated than the austere ones in Hallgrimskirkja.

This church was right in front of our hotel so we passed it every day. It is a lovely small church and very clean. We never went inside but it was nice to wander around the area.

Charming little Church close to city hall. Many mistakenly believe Hallsgrimm is the main Church but they are mistaken- the other one is bigger but this is older and the main Church of Reykjavik. I found it very charming.

Part of our tour, we stopped at this cathedral. It was built in 1787-1796 and its neo classical style defines it . It’s the seat of the Bishop of Iceland and mother church of the Lutheran religion. Apparently, you can have a private tour but unfortunately we couldn’t stay .

This isn't a very big cathedral, but the inside is much nicer than Hillgrimskirkja in my opinion. It's worth a stop if you are walking around the city. I spent about 10 minutes there, just to look around and take photos. It is only open about 4 hours a day and if there is an event, they close. I was lucky enough to visit on my last day in the city.

Although it is smaller and less well known than Hallgrimskirkja, Domkirkjan is actually Reykjavik's Lutheran Cathedral. Located on the same square as Parliament, the church is much more impressive on the inside than its exterior would suggest. Built in 1848, it was the main church for the economic and political elites. Still an active church.

This lovely Lutheran chapel is located very near the picturesque Lake Tjornin. The second time that we were in the vicinity, we were fortunate enough to visit the interior. Very special place. Reykjavik City Hall is also close by. Do not miss the topography map there.

Quite amazing that this is the cathedral and not the Hallgrimskirkja considering that is much larger than this! But it has a lot of history and is really cute.
Inside is beautiful, very simple.
In a nice area of the city. A pretty park outside.

f Reykjavik is Hallgrimskirkja. However, big and beautiful is not a synonym for Cathedral. At least in Iceland. The Cathedral has been located next to the Althing - Parliament since 1845, when it was restored. Each session of Parliament began with a mass in the Cathedral, and the Dean of the Cathedral led members of Parliament from there to the Parliament building. Unlike the members of the Althing, I didn't get into the Cathedral. It was closed. But Protestant cathedrals have one undeniable advantage over Catholic basilicas. If you don't find them open, you don't get upset at all. For the simple reason that there is not much to see in them. And the Bible can be read next to you on a bench in the Park. Unless, of course, the Gale blows away...

We visited here today. It’s s white church which looks very pretty. Around the church there are two statues and you can go inside the church. It is smaller than the other churches in Reykjavík but still worth a visit when you are in the main bit of the city because it’s. Lose by to lots of other places to visit. Enjoyed the visit.
