Reykjavík City Hall

The modern gray structure that seems to be floating on Reykjavik’s Tjornin Pond, is actually the City Hall Building and houses the Mayor’s office and those of executive officials.

Don’t miss the enormous 3-D relief map inside which provides a unique perspective of the entire island with its many volcanoes, mountains, craters, fjords and glaciers.

The space is often used for events and receptions as well as a steady stream of exhibitions of local artists. Also located on premises are a tourist information desk and the pleasant cafe Ondin which provides fantastic views of the pond and computers with free internet access.
