  • Akureyrarkirkja er ein fallegasta kirkja landsins og mæli ég með að allir skoði. Gaman að ganga kirkjutröppurnar og koma þaðan að henni.  more »
  • Modern Church Admission is free but with certain hours. Not everything for free deserves high score. It gave us a not very pleasant image except the feeling and religious faith.

  • is this impressive church on the hill. The ascent is worthwhile, the church is worth a visit outside and inside, as well as the view of the village and the port.

  • Quick a number of steps up to the church but you will get a good view of Akureyri from the top. Nothing really special about this church. glass windows and a proper church organ. Did not feel very welcome as the Uncle was more interested in putting out a "close the door" sign. Does not smile at greetings.
  • Nice walk up the steps and beutifull inside with the stained glass. Great view from the top and looking at the history. Clock was 5 minutes fast but can't really complain about that
  • The external architecture is very interesting, but inside is un inspiring and minimal. I spent 3 minutes inside and it was more than enough time. I don't think the church authorities want tourists visiting and that's fine with me, understandable. Great views of the port from the forecourt though.
  • Really lovely church, long stair case up to it, parking lot behind, it up the hill. Beautiful stain glass, 100kr donation for prayer candles.
  • A small church that wouldn't warrant a trip on it's own but if you're walking around town it is worth the stop. The stairs were not as bad as some would have you believe
