Given the limited number of places to visit in Reyjavik, this is a natural pop-in. For few bucks, you get to take an elevator to the top view the city from bird's eye of view. The elevator takes only 6 people at the time, so...More

I liked the church very much, but there are more beautiful churches in Iceland. The inside is rather sober, but the organ is impressive!

The exterior was interesting and unique, but the interior was unremarkable. Worth the walk and nice point to orient oneself with your surroundings, but pales a bit to similar structures in many European cities.

The church is beautiful and sits atop a hill in downtown Reykjavik. It is cheap to go up in the tower and you can see all around the city. The church is still in very good condition and you should at least visit it if...More

You can't get the ticket to the top in advance, but you likely wouldn't need to anyway. We didn't have to wait at all. It was quick, easy, and an amazing experience!
