Harpa Conference And Concert Center, Reykjavik Reviews
Has a very nice souvenir shop just inside on the right hand side. Very nice and friendly here. Beautiful building and is a magnificent sight to behold. A must see when visiting Reykjavik. The views outside of this building are phenomenal including some snowy mountains (at the time of visit).
Been here for two conferences and it was Excellent both times. Catered food is good here as well. The venue is gorgeous and worth a visit as a tourist. Try to get your lodging near harpa as many things depart from it and you will never get sick of the view (both of the building and the water).
This is a wonderful must-see building if you are in the area. The architecture is definitely unique and intriguing. This performance arts center is a gem in Reykjavik and I plan to see more performances when I return in future trips! The performance I saw was one of the best in my opinion and it made my visit very fulfilling. Their prices are very reasonable.
Great venue for conferences and events. The building is an astonishing piece of modern architecture both from the outside and also inside with nice views to the harbor. There is a cafeteria and a museum. Free WiFi is also available.
Wonderful place, architecture pearl, and hi-tech interior design. Place you must see in Reykjavik even just for a while and even from outside. Modern progressive, present-day, up-to-date, visionary building fits to the Scandinavian culture and art. I love it. Cant wait to see it again.
