Nordic House - Review

This cultural center to the south of Hljomskalagardur Park focuses on strengthening cultural ties between Iceland and other Nordic countries. It is notable in several aspects. For example, the building’s striking design is owed to Finnish modernist architect Alvar Aalto. Its library houses over 30,000 media items that are not even in the Icelandic language. It organises many events for important cultural occasions such as the Reykjavík International Film and Literary Festivals and The Nordic Fashion Biennale. Additionally, the AALTO Bistro is a terrific dining option, with meals prepared by chef Sveinn Kjartansson. Stay updated on the activities of the center on its website.

Nordic House, Reykjavik Reviews

  • Got to see Amiina here and it was incredible. Was gifted a ticket at the last minute (thankfully as I think the show was sold out), and went a few minutes before start time. The show started on time, and I was able to get a front row ticket easily. The acoustics of the venue are great, and the ambiance is awesome. I'd go back regularly if I could.

  • The Nordic House was worth visiting. Helpful and friendly personnel, a nice bistro too. The exhibition "Inspired by Aalto" was interesting and very well designed.

  • It says it's a culture centre but it's more like a uni campus thing, it's pretty inside tho

  • It depends a bit on the exhibitions of this place is worth a detour. When we were there there was an interactive exhibition which generated music based on the movement of the public. Great for kids.

  • Lovely food and setting with a view of Reykjavik and the surrounding mountains!
