Night Club
“OK .. so they hardly play any music in there and it get's very crowded and confusing. BUT downstairs there is a grand piano (do you play??) When ever someone starts playing it (free for anyone who can) a group of people will gather around for singing along. Pretty impressive choirs have formed there with a jug of beer in one hand and the person next to you in the other. If you can play and start a major party you will be loved by all! The atmosphere can get awesome! Drinks can get expensive - don't buy a round! We never do. ”

“The Akureyri church is the symbol of Akureyri. It is a Lutheran church and was designed by architect Gudjon Samuelsson and consecrated in 1940. The central stained glass window above the altar formed a part of a set originating from England. The bas-reliefs on the nave balcony are by sculptor Asmundur Sveinsson and the baptismal font is a replica of a work by sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen. The church is located in the town center. There´s a tradition in Iceland to walk up the steps to the church and counting the steps!”
