Parques y naturaleza en Reikiavik

Las mejores recomendaciones de la gente local para disfrutar la naturaleza

“Hallgrímskirkja church is Reykjavík's main landmark and its tower can be seen from almost everywhere in the city. It was designed by the late Guðjón Samúelsson in 1937, who was often inspired in his endeavours by the fascinating shapes and forms created when lava cools into basalt rock. Construction of the church began in 1945 and ended in 1986, with the tower completed long before the rest of the building. The crypt beneath the choir was consecrated in 1948, the steeple and wings completed in 1974 and the nave consecrated in 1986. The church features, most notably, a gargantuan pipe organ designed and constructed by the German organ builder Johannes Klais of Bonn. Standing tall at an impressive 15m and weighing a remarkable 25 tons, this mechanical action organ is driven by four manuals and a pedal, 102 ranks, 72 stops and 5275 pipes, all designed to reproduce powerful notes capable of filling the huge and holy space with a range of tones - from the dulcet to the dramatic. Its construction was completed in December 1992 and has since been utilised in a variety of recordings, including some by Christopher Herrick. Standing directly in front of the church, and predating it by 15 years, is a fine statue of Leifur Eiríksson (c. 970 – c. 1020) – the first European to discover America. Records suggest that Leifur landed on the shores of the new world in the year 1,000 A.D., that's 500 years before Christopher Columbus. The statue, which was designed by Alexander Stirling Calder was a gift from the United States in honour of the 1930 Alþingi Millennial Festival, commemorating the 1,000th anniversary of the establishment of Iceland's parliament at Þingvellir in 930 AD. ”

“The local swimming pool. Swimming pools are a big part of Icelandic culture. We love to go hang out and chat in the hot tubs and relax in the steam baths and sauna. Take your own swimsuits and bath towels and be prepared to shower before and after in a shared locker room. This one is my personal favorite due to the circular steam room and variety of temperatures in the hot tubs. After you can grab a burger at Hagavagninn, a coffee at Kaffihús vesturbæjar, get one of the best cinnamon buns in town at Brauð og co. or go to Ísbúð Vesturbæjar for an ice cream. Icelanders are also crazy for their ice cream and the swimming pool / ice cream combo is popular all year round!”

“One of the best things about Iceland is all the thermol swimmingpools. They say in any neighborhood there is one swimmingpool is walking distance. You are very lucky because Reykjaviks oldest swimmingpool is just around the corner. Sundhöll Reykjavíkur or the Swimming Palace as it would be directly translated to English is the oldest pool in Iceland and was built in 1937 & proudly designed by Guðjón Samúelson, state architect. “Sundhöllin” is located right in the heart of Reykjavik, only a few minutes walk from Hallgrímskirkja church so just about 1 minute walk from this studio. I recommand Ending the day with going to the hot tub and sauna and begining it with it also. The opening hours are: Monday - Friday 06:30 - 22:00 Saturday - Sunday 08:00 - 22:00”

“Skólavörðustígur is a beautiful street leading up to Hallgrímskirkja, the big church. One might say that the local clothes shops have one by one transferred here from Laugavegur after the tourist bomb hit Iceland. Check out Geysir, Kormákur og Skjöldur and Yeoman for nice clothes. There is also a nice coffee/bookstore called Eymundsson around the middle of the street. ”
