Hljómskálagarðurinn is a park in Reykjavík’s downtown area, renowned for its birdlife, sculptures, and serenity.
Visit this park on a tour of Reykjavik.
Located beside Tjörnin pond, many freshwater bird species frequent the area, such as duck and geese, as well as other species such as Arctic Terns. The sculptures on site were all produced by women, five of whom were Icelandic, and one of whom was Danish.
The park is a popular site to unwind after a day of shopping, particularly in summer, and can be dark enough during winter to spot the northern lights. It is great for both adults and children; the latter will be entertained by the playpark on site.
Hjómskálagarður is right beside the National Gallery of Iceland and Reykjavík City Hall, where you can find the Guide to Iceland office.
