About Harpa Conference And Concert Center, Reykjavik

Opened in 2011, the center primarily functions as a concert hall, serving as home to four music companies: the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, The Icelandic Opera, The Reykjavik Big Band, and Maximus Musicus. It also hosts music festivals. Additionally, it’s a conference and exhibitions center. The architecture of the building is notable. At a casual glance it looks like a huge block of glass and steel, which the firm Henning Larsen Architects and artist Olafur Eliasson wanted to reflect Iceland’s landscape. For those who want to explore further, the center provides guided tours of the facilities. Check the center website for details on upcoming events and concerts. There are also a couple of excellent restaurants on site.

  • This concert hall is really pretty and has a lot of interesting glass windows and architecture on the inside. I walked around the large building and each area seemed to have its own area and presence. Downstairs was pretty fancy and as you went higher and higher it became modern and sleek.

  • Great evening and for Iceland reasonably priced. We got 2 tickets for about £70 to a jazz evening we booked only a few hours before the start and it was amazing. The building itself was also beautiful.

  • Harpa is a beautiful piece of architecture and a welcome addition to Reykjavik. The glass tile honeycomb look is spectacular and at night the coloured lights on the windows is stunning. The lights look like the aurora very special. Inside there is a concert hall, opera, 4D cinema, cafe and a couple of tourist shops.

  • What a gorgeous building! Situated on the harbour with beautiful views. Saw the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra in the larger room as part of Airwaves and it was phenomenal. A must-visit for a show when in Reykjavik.
