You can see this church from nearly anywhere in the city, as the tower rises up and the churches jagged design makes it one of the most unique churches anywhere. The view from outside is impressive, but you'll need to stand across the street to get a full shot of the church. Inside the church is fairly ordinary, though there are some display boards that feature the church's history and facts about the birth of Christianity in Iceland. You can go up to the top of the tower for a fee (about $3), and tickets must be purchased from the church office to do so. Up in the bell tower, various windows give excellent views of Reykjavik and the bay.
