This is a church like no other. Usually they all have the same structure of a specific construction type but I have never seen a similar church. I think it’s one of the best things in Reykjavík and a must see for all tourist.

It's a very unusual shape for a church, very modern. You can go to the church tower & the views are amazing, but the wind is unbelievable. You get a lift so far up then walk a few stairs Cost 1000 ISK to go up.

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