Best part after offering respects is the lookout from upstairs. This Church is at a walkable distance from a very lively and pedestrian friendly market area with lots of cafes, shops and restaurants. Onsite parking is free.

It looks bigger on pictures but it is not that big. Beautiful piece of achitecture and a simbol of the city. The inside is very simple but at the same time is very interesting.

The highest spot in Reykjavik, you certainly get an overall view of the beauty of the city. The elevator ride is brief, only 6 to an elevator. It was 1000 krona to go up. It's not inexpensive, but this is Iceland. If you want a...More

We came here for a few days and it was great to visit the top to see Reykjavik from above. The snow was amazing and the staff very friendly

Fairly central to Reykjavík at the top of a hill but a short walk. Wonderful views from the top and inside is very different and unusual to the usual churches visited. Warm inside for a break from the weather. Worth a visit and free although...More

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

No one took our tickets either. It was the honor system. If it was me, I would just ask them when I bought the ticket and go with what they said. I bet they would say it was fine.

It is only open until 9pm. We got there right when it opened-less tourists.
