Bold and modern, this impressive building in the centre of Reykjavík, connects nature, water and is designed deliberately to attract bird-life to the centre of town. Opening in 1992, it houses the Mayor and other executive officials of Reykjavík. On the ground floor, you’ll find a helpful information desk and internet access. The building is also put to use as a gallery, hosting a steady stream of new and exciting exhibitions. A perennial favourite in the exhibition hall is the huge 3D map of Iceland. It is equally interesting to examine it before and after your explorations of Iceland.
