  • Beautiful, artistic statue dedicated to the first settler of Iceland 876 AD. Nice setting on a hill that offers a nice view of the city. More info on the walking tour. 
  • The statue on the Hill in the center of the city. It is not a sight can watch the stop of the city hotels are clustered around from the hills, but many buildings and surprising and funny. Ingólfr Arnarson (arnarson) is the model for this statue. As Norman settlers in the 9th century the first emigrated to Iceland promising person, was built by 20th century sculptor Einar Jonsson. By the way, this same sculpture can watch at the Johnson Museum of art (beside the hallgrímskirkja Church).

  • Not a park and not a square, but it has the statue of Ingólfur Arnarsson who found Iceland after sailing from Norway. There are benches around the statue and it gives a nice view over the harbor. On the independence day the 17th of June and on culture night in august, this comes a popular place to sit on because of outdoor concerts in the evening.
  • Cool place for local events
  • Looks lovely, cold in the winter.
  • Relaxing place, sometimes used for concerts. Really not much to say about this place
