It's a good walk around the city's downtown. i enjoyed it a lot, many places to eat. Although the building is not the most impressive one, the whole of the area is good.

It is lovely to go into this building and warm up for free in the pleasant surroundings. The huge relief map of Iceland is wonderful.

The City Hall is down at the bottom of Laugavegur, at the end of the Pond. An interesting building with a huge 3-D model of Iceland, and lots of tourist info and maps. The building butts up against water on two sides. Worth a visit...More

We didn't go inside the City Hall building; but we did spend some time watching the ducks, geese, seagulls and swans at the lake. For bird lovers, this is a nice (and free) place to visit in Reykjavik.

See previous review praising Josef who helped us book our tours. The building itself is beautiful, so it's a great place for tourism.

Very interesting display of the city in minature with representations of future development. The floor is a street map of Reykjavik. There is also a topographic map of the whole island that shows where the volcanos are and the glaciers and mountians,

Very accessible. really just 1 floor no obstacles. As I remember they are open from morning to evening kinda of a 8-8 thing. Very tourist oriented and informative. Completely unintimidating.
