Reykjavik both open and closed over Christmas: best to check!

olafur-kr-olafssonEvery year, the kind folks at Visit Reykjavik compile an amazingly useful list of key opening times over Christmas and New Year to aid tourists and locals in equal measure in enjoying the city over the holiday.

The list can be seen here.

IceNews has also been asked to distribute the holiday opening hours of the National Culture House. The Culture House is a beautiful stone building on Hverfisgata in central Reykjavik with a programme of exciting events, as well as resident exhibitions.

The Culture House is home to a great collection of important medieval manuscripts, including original copies of eddas and sagas. The house is also home to a fascinating multimedia exhibit about the creation of Surtsey – one of the world’s youngest islands.
