  • We wandered in to the Harpa Concert Hall and admired all the space and workmanship. It makes us want to come back to Reykjavik just to see/hear a concert or opera!!  more »
  • The immense beauty and force of this building is not immediately evident until you get close and explore the inside. I love that it is open to the public to explore. This is a great place to sit down ...  more »
  • Outside and inside its a very striking building, well worth seeing but the film, Iceland in a box is disappointing. Just 15 mins long, it is not really 360 degrees as commonly understood. You are advi...  more »

  • Visited the place just as an attraction and not for a concert. Cool building well worth visiting for its architecture. There is a movie theater showing movies about Iceland (free for kids but pricey for adults), a few very expense souvenir shops and a crown jewel of it all -a pay toilet (after all it's Iceland).
  • Harpa Concert hall is a lovely glass building in Reykjavik, Iceland which is located near the Harbour. The building is very pretty when the sun Shine's on it, it twinkles with lots of different colours & is lit up at night so can be seen from a distance. Inside is a small shopping centre with gift shops, book shops, cafes, cinema & rest rooms. It has a relaxed atmosphere inside & the people are very friendly. A lovely place to visit on a cold afternoon.
  • Down by the harbour, this modern building shines with reflected light and lures you in. Inside offers some spectacular geometric architecture, a cinematic tour of Iceland, a shop and bars, as well as the chance to be entertained by the various concerts and shows on offer. There are also areas to relax, play games and be creative. The views over the harbour are spectacular. Just the side, is a stone covered beach, where you can practice balancing stones and leave your mark.
  • It is not easy to describe just how beautifully unique Harpa's building is. From so many different angles on the outside you see such beautiful glasswork. Then you head inside and once again have so many fun angles to look up, down, left, right, etc. Fun to spend time here just taking photos. Would have loved to attend an event or just see the concert hall but time was not permitting for us. Alas, I fully intend to visit Reykjavik again in the future. Definitely a must see.
  • The 15 minutes 4 screens Iceland promo video showing in the basement level 2 is not very good at all. The ticket cost 1500kr. The video was short and the pictures were not sharp. The screens were high up so we had to tilt our heads the whole time. I would suggest people to avoid this. Aurora Northern Light Museum was much more fun.
