This thermal swimming pool offers a good pool, indoor and outdoor hot tubs and is a great way to meet the locals and discuss the topic of the day!
Indoor/outdoor geothermal public pool. The indoor pool was designed by state architect Guðjón Samúelsson (Hallgrímskirkja Church, University of Iceland, National Theater) and opened in 1937. The pool was recently expanded and now includes an outdoor pool as well.
The local swimming pool. Within walking distance just over the hill by Hallgrímskirkja. We love to go there as often as possible. We have heated pools and hot tubs, saunas and steam baths. A bit pricey but worth it. If you're staying for a longer time or are planning to go a few times, I'd…
Soak in the hot tub to relax after a day of sightseeing or a night of partying... and dip into the cold one if you dare!
“Situated in the centre of Reykjavík, it is one of the city's best-known landmarks and is visible throughout the city. State Architect Guðjón Samúelsson's design of the church was commissioned in 1937. He is said to have designed it to resemble the trap rocks, mountains and glaciers of Iceland's landscape”
“Reykjavík Art Museum is a dynamic and progressive scene which gives guests an opportunity to get to know diverse art and gain a deeper understanding of the historic, social, cultural and artistic context of different artworks. The museum exhibits work from Icelandic and international leading artists in Modern and Contemporary Art. ”
“Kaffibarinn is one of the oldest bars in town. The tourist to local hipster ratio has understandably shifted in favour of the tourists in the last decade or so. But that does not seem to make Kaffibarinn any less hip. In fact it sort of adds a new level of coolness. Kaffibarinn at the weekends is an experience you will either love or hate. But if you don´t fancy the partying crowds at night, but you like the sound of Kaffibarinn´s warm, dingly charm, then check it out in the daytime for a cosy coffee or draught beers on offer.”
“Located in a beautiful green area,perfect for a walk or a picnic. One of the cities best art museum. A nice café at the museum.”
