Hallgrímskirkja stands guard over Reykjavík. The church is both a parish church and a national sanctuary in Iceland. Its stepped concrete facade is an ode to modernism and a reminder of the Icelandic landscape. The church’s interior is stark yet dynamic, with its vaulted ceiling casting delicate scalloped shadows across creamy walls. The church is named after the 17th-century clergyman Hallgrímur Pétursson, author of a famous series of Hymns of the Passion. Hallgrímskirkja is one of the most visited places of tourists in Iceland. Every day thousands of people visit the church. You are welcome! Admission free to the church. Admission to the tower ISK 900 – ISK 100 for the children (7-14).
