Imagine Peace Tower, Reykjavik

3.6
#13 of 21 in Sightseeing in Reykjavik
Monument Tourist Spot
Imagine Peace Tower is a tall tower of light projected from a white stone monument, designed by artist Yoko Ono as a memorial to her late husband, John Lennon. It's also a reference to his peace anthem, "Imagine." Notice the words "imagine peace" in 24 languages carved into the monument. The column of light emerges vertically into the sky from a 10 m (33 ft) wide wishing well. One million written wishes, which Ono gathered over the years in another project, are buried underneath the tower. The intensity of the light changes depending on the weather conditions. Take a guided tour to learn more about the couple's continuing campaign for world peace, which began in the 1960s.

  • Nice ferry ride over to island, but nothing much to see. Peace Tower is a little hole that is only lit a short time during the year. Good for a walk thru the grasslands but that's about it. Cafe on gr...  more »

Where to stay in Reykjavik

In this highly walkable capital, many of Reykjavik's hotels and guesthouses offer close proximity to the city's popular attractions, bars, and restaurants. The waterfront offers an exciting dose of activity. Although Reykjavik provides plenty of accommodations to its flocks of visitors, there is a dearth of budget options in the city. Price-conscious visitors should consider staying in a hostel, with both private and dorm rooms available, or a nearby campsite. Although the campground is not as centrally located as some hotels, guests are better positioned to take advantage of the natural surroundings.
