We found this church to be very modern and minimalist on the inside compared to other European churches we have been on the Mainland. The pipe organ at the back was beautiful.

We opted not to go up the tower due to the cost and line up.

Church beautiful inside and out. Don’t miss organ pipes overhead at the back. Statue of Leif Ericsson very impressive.

This church is unique outside and so beautiful inside. There are quiet corners where one can meditate and pray. I loved the small prayer space tucked in the corner of the sanctuary. The pipes for the pipe organ are magnificent. I would have loved to hear the organ being played, but arrived to late on Sunday to attend a service.

clearly a special architecture. View from the top is great ($), even on cloudy day. Inside of the church is very sober

Loved soaking in the culture of Iceland by walking through this cathedral. We took the elevator to top and got to see all the different colored houses that is unique to the area. It was the cheapest thing we got to do while there since Iceland is known for high prices.
