Reykjavik

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Do your shopping at Laugavegur and 12 Tonar. Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Thingvellir National Park. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, browse the exhibits of Perlan, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Reykjavik day trip planning app .

Munich, Germany to Reykjavik is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of car and ferry. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Munich to Reykjavik due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Munich in March, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Reykjavik: temperatures range from 4°C by day to -1°C at night.
