To seeTo see

The city centre, the historic district of Reykjavik, is also the most welcoming part of the capital. The city hall – the Ráðhús –, with its contemporary design, stands in sharp contrast to the colourful old wooden and corrugated tin houses dating back to the 19th century.

Tjörnin (lake)
This unusual location, right at the heart of the city, is a dedicated bird watching site where migratory species of birds can be admired. Ideal for skating in winter!

Listasafn Íslands (National Art Gallery)
The National Art Gallery houses a rich collection of Icelandic art from the 19th century to the present day, including the famous Sumarnótt á Þingvöllum (Summer night at Þingvellir) by Johannes Kjarval. Also worth seeing are paintings by internationally renowned artists such as Edvard Munch and Picasso.

Þjóðmenningarhúsið (Cultural Centre)
This building houses a number of exceptional manuscripts, which make an important contribution to our understanding of Scandinavian mythology. Moreover, it offers an opportunity to admire the Codex Regius of the Poetic Edda and Snorri's Edda, along with the Flateyjarbók, which discusses the Viking expansion and the Christianization of the Nordic countries.

Hallgrímskirkja (Church of Hallgrímur)
This church, built in homage to Iceland’s celebrated religious poet Hallgrímur Pétursson, is the most important holy building ever constructed in Iceland! It offers an exceptional panorama of Reykjavik and its surrounding area. On a clear day, you can even see the Snæfellsjökull, a magnificent ice-covered stratovolcano.

This hill provides a magnificent vantage point for looking down over Reykjavik. At the summit, erected over the city’s hot water tanks, stands Perlan (‘The Pearl’), a revolving glass dome housing one of the capital’s finest restaurants. Pure magic!

Grasagarður (Botanical gardens)
This 2.5 hectare botanical garden contains some 5,000 plant species, with very fine specimens of indigenous Icelandic flora. It also has an arboretum, rockery, rose garden and a number of non-native species grown under glass. Alongside the garden, a pavilion provides an area for relaxation that is very popular with local people, with catering facilities during the summer period.
