A weekend in Reykjavík

Our colleagues at Visit Iceland have made a great article for a weekend in our beloved city.

Reykjavík is one of the fastest-growing capitals in Europe, evident by the robust city centre where Iceland's young and increasingly diverse population reinvents the world’s northernmost capital.

To get oriented, let’s start with some landmarks: Main Street is Laugavegur, buses leave from Lækjartorg Square and Hlemmur, the tallest building is Hallgrímskirkja Church, the modern icon is Harpa Concert Hall and the most popular food vendor, Bæjarins Bestu, a hot-dog stand, is across the road from the world's only genuine penis museum - The Icelandic Phallological Museum. Reykjavík, despite its cosmopolitan vibe, keeps tight to its quirky traits.

Getting from one end to another is only 3km at most. Guided Walking Tours - departing year-round - are a fun and popular way to explore.
