Reykjavik City Hall


Reykjavík City Hall is an impressive building on the northern shore of the Lake Tjörnin.

Bold and modern, this impressive building in the centre of Reykjavík, connects nature, water and is designed deliberately to attract bird-life to the centre of town. Opening in 1992, it houses the Mayor and other executive officials of Reykjavík. The building is also put to use as a gallery, hosting a steady stream of new and exciting exhibitions. A perennial favourite in the exhibition hall is the huge 3D map of Iceland. It is equally interesting to examine before and after your explorations of Iceland.
