Perlan - The Pearl, ReykjavÝk: 25 reviews and 92 photos
On the fourth floor of Perlan there is a panoramic platform with one of the best views of the city. In HallgrÝmskirkja there is another panoramic platform with a better view of the city center, each one is equally nice, but the view from Perlan is for free, whereas you pay for going to the HallgrÝmskirkja tower (see my tip on HallgrÝmskirkja).
There are 6 panoramic telescopes, you just press a button and can chose between a description in Icelandic, English, German, French and Norwegian. There you can take a closer look at f.ex. Bessastair, the resident of the President of Iceland.
There are 3 view-dials on top of the panoramic platform on which I have written a separate tip.
I think that almost every tourist visiting ReykjavÝk visits Perlan and I do recommend a visit there. I go there often.
Address: ÍskjuhlÝ (Oskjuhlid) ReykjavÝk
Directions: Perlan is situated on ÍskjuhlÝ hill, very close to the city center and the domestic airport.
