Formally opened in 2011, Harpa has become one of Reykjavík’s signature landmarks. Its glass dome, designed by the artist Olafur Eliasson, is a breathtaking structure, whether being viewed from the inside or outside. If you can, do catch a show in the impressive “Eldborg”, the largest music hall. Either way, a visit to Harpa is well worth your time.
Harpa is the iconic glass structure next to the harbor. The Icelandic Symphony Orchestra plays in the main hall, but the hall is also the venue for various concerts. It's also a nice spot to get a view of a good part of the old city.
