THE 10 CLOSEST Hotels to Hallgrimskirkja

Hotels near Hallgrimskirkja

Hallgrimskirkja is the largest church in the country, and towers over the centre of Reykjavik. Its 73-metre-high tower provides a wonderful 360° view over all Reykjavik, the mountains around and the ocean streaching west to Greenland and the Americas. Because of this, the tower is among the most visited tourist destinations in Reykjavik. Tower admission Adults: ISK 1000 Children: ISK 100 (ages 7-16) Tickets are sold in the church shop. Access to the tower is only by lift. At the top there are a few steps to the open-air viewing platform. Winter (October – April): 09:00 – 17:00. Tower closes 16:30. Summer (May – September): 09:00 – 21:00. Tower closes 20:30. The tower is closed on Sundays from 10:30 – 12:15 during mass at 11:00. Hallgrimskirkja is an active, working church and sometimes we may close the church without notice, especially due to weddings or funerals. Everyone is welcome to join services and concerts, but we ask visitors to stay the whole time to avoid disturbance.

    Magnificent and unusual house of worship
    We saw the mention of this Famous church on trip advisor and wanted to visit . It’s easy to get too , admission is free and it feels almost alien . Very unusual and interesting architecture . We didn’t take the elevator to the top but it seemed quite easy if you wanted to wait in line . The tickets are available in the church gift shop

    Go in the Afternoon when the organist is playing
    We went one afternoon the organist was playing. It was beautful! I could just close my eyes and listen. Many people paid to take the elevator to the top. When it is clear - they said the view was spectacular. It was pouring rain the day we went - so not much view but stunning music.

    The biggest, and best, church in Iceland
    Don't miss a visit to the church or to the tower. The interior of the church is simple, yet spectacular in its simplicity, with 2 organs, one with 4 manuals and 5275 pipes, the other (added in 1985) a simpler 2 manual one. Don't miss the icons and sculptures, or a visit to the tower (accessible by lift). Just be careful on the quarter- and half- hours, when the bells chime.

    Stunning architecture
    Fabulous to see this amazing piece of architecture. Walking through the streets of Rekijavik, you can't fail to see the church. We ventured in and it was so serene and peaceful. We didn't make it to a service, but so glad we took the time to go inside and see the building from inside too.

    Worth a visit!
    Honestly I found the church very very beautiful. It might seem like simple architecture but you would definitely appreciate the interior + architecture. Don’t miss out on going to the top of the church to see a panoramic view of Reykjavik! You even might get to hear the bell ring infront of you!

    The most iconic building in Iceland, make the walk to view it up close.
    This church is unique and stands out on the Reykjvaik landscape. One can use it to get your bearings of where you are as it can be seen from most places in the city. It stands high atop a hill. The church is dedicated to Leif Erickson and his statue is located in front. Inside, though not ornate like many old European churches is well worth seeing with it's more modern look as it was more recently built in 1986. The organ in the back above the entry doors is pretty cool. You can take the elevator to the top of the tower for the view. It costs 1000 ISK (about $7.50 USD).

    The crowning gem of Reykjavik
    An icon of Reykjavik, the church is beautiful on the outside and in, and the place feels huge without overwhelming at times. If there is one complaint I had, it was that it was pretty bare, but as it is a newer and protestant cathedral, that's more of the norm I suspect. But definitely and incredible and unique place of worship.

    Church in Reykjavik
    Definitely an iconic building in Reykjavik. Easy to walk to if you're staying downtown, although you will have to walk up a hill to get to it. You'll be able to get nice photos from the plaza area outside of the church. The church itself is free to visit. The inside of the church is quite bare, so don't expect the flare of other European churches. If you're able, purchase the ticket to go up to the top view to see the city.

    Walking around Reykjavik
    Very unique structure right in downtown Reykjavik. Easy to find during an afternoon walking around in Reykjavik after parking the car in a garage. It was closed when we arrived as it was used for a funeral so we just walk around the city before returning when it was reopened to the public after the funeral

    Enjoy the view of all of Reykjavik from the Church Tower
    Entry to the Church is free of charge. If you want to enjoy the view from the Church Tower, the fee is 1300 islandic kroner for an adult. Discounts given for kids and senior citizens. The Church is a landmark of the entire city. And the view from the top is worth the price. The Church has a gift shop on the Ground floor, where you also buy the ticket for the elevator to take you to the top. The area around the Church is interesting too, many galleries and restaurants and shopping just a few feet away.
