Simple yet beautiful church interior and great views of the city and the area from the bell tower. Well worth the visit.

The church is a symbol of Reykjavik and can be seen from much of the city. It is designed to resemble a volcano at the top and basalt formations, made from slowly cooling lava, for the remainder of the building. Knowing that aids in appreciation...More

Beautiful! Lit up at night or during the day. Chimes on the quarter hour. 73meter high tower. Can pay to go up to the belfry to get a lovely view of Reykjavík

A simply but magnificent church! The front is really high and in the evening from the peak you can see lights on

As per previous reviews, very limited parking. Better to park elsewhere and walk up.
