    With one of the world's top 10 economies, Britain cuts arts funding. Facing total financial ruin, Iceland built this stunning performance venue. I know which future generations will appreciate more.

    Breathtaking landmark in the port. Worth a visit during the day and by night when the outside is illuminated - to mimic northem lights. The visit of the building is free and it's open till late.

    The behind the scenes tour and 360 movie are a great way to visit Harpa without committing to a formal ticket. The tour is a must for anyone who likes architecture and/or music!

    Try to see it from different angles and go inside to not miss the just as spectacular view. It‘s highly recommended to pass by architect Olafur Eliasson‘s Reykjavik studio at Marshallhúsið.

    It is without a doubt a jewel, more like a sculpture than a concert hall where the mountains meet the sea. There is a great restaurant inside and is sublime even just to read with a glass of wine

    Amazing building inside and out. Interesting shops and cafe areas. Worth even just a wander through to get a look at the incredible structure from the inside!

    A few beautiful shops, a cafe, lovely seating lining the stairs to the second level, gorgeous setting - perfect exploring for a break from rainy or snowy weather.

    The big gray boats outside are part of Island's Coast Guard. Their primary purpose is to protect Island's fishing waters from foreign fishermen.

    Beautiful concert hall with dramatic natural lighting. Check out the “How to be Icelandic in 60 minutes” and “Icelandic Sagas” shows.

    A stunning, stunning building - totally mesmerising. The interior surpasses the exterior in the most psychedelic of ways. Absolute pleasure to visit!

    The building is fantastic both externally and internally. After you enter, it's a good idea take the elevator on the right to the fifth floor and walk down the building.

    Harpa Conference & Concert Center • Visit the place for the architecture, nice views over the harbour. You can find there a 12 Tónar music shop.

    Older crowd @ chamber music shows, but if you're coming to see the architecture, you must come both at night and during the day!

    Great architecture, just don't use the toilet. At 600kr (5 euro) that buys you a small lunch at some European cities

    Take the tour! They show you all of their auditoriums, let you see behind the scenes and give some history of the building

    Apparently this is a concert hall or something, but go inside and it's a maze of wonder for anyone with a camera.
