From Hallgrímskirkja you'll find the best view in town. Go up to the tower and enjoy the amazing Reykjavik scenery!

Hallgrímskirkja church is visible from almost anywhere in the city. The tower of the church is among the city's highest buildings and offers a great view of the city. The tower is open to guests daily from 9am to 5pm. Admission is 900 ISK for adults and 100 ISK for children 7-14 years old.

Hallgrímskirkja is the largest church- and the sixth tallest architectural structure in Iceland. It's named after the Icelandic poet and clergyman Hallgrimur Petursson, author of the Passion Hymns. The architect who designed it, Guðjón Samúelsson is said to have designed it to resemble the basalt lava flows of Iceland's landscape.

The construction work began in 1945 and took 38 years to be completed. The observation tower provides a view of the whole city and the surrounding mountains. The statue of explorer Leif Eiriksson is in front of the church.

Stop by here and view the famous landmark, beautiful architecture and vibrant life of the church.
