Hallgrímskirkja

September 2, 2020

Hallgrímskirkja is the largest church in the country, and towers over the centre of Reykjavík. It’s 74,5 -meter tower provides a wonderful 360° view over all Reykjavík, the mountains around and the ocean. It is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Reykjavík. It is named after an Icelandic poet and clergyman, Hallgrímur Pétursson (1614-74), the author of the Passíusálmar and other works.

Hallgrímskirkja church has free entry and for a small fee you can climb to the tippy top and enjoy a superb view. Access to the tower is by lift. There are a few steps up to the viewing platform. It's wonderful (and deafening) if you're up there while the bells sound.
