  • Got to see Amiina here and it was incredible. Was gifted a ticket at the last minute (thankfully as I think the show was sold out), and went a few minutes before start time. The show started on time, and I was able to get a front row ticket easily. The acoustics of the venue are great, and the ambiance is awesome. I'd go back regularly if I could.
  • The Nordic House was worth visiting. Helpful and friendly personnel, a nice bistro too. The exhibition "Inspired by Aalto" was interesting and very well designed.
  • It depends a bit on the exhibitions of this place is worth a detour. When we were there there was an interactive exhibition which generated music based on the movement of the public. Great for kids.
  • Lovely food and setting with a view of Reykjavik and the surrounding mountains!
  • Quiet and beautiful, with views overlooking a bird preserve. There's a great restaurant inside too.
