Concert Hall
“Our opera house. Ten minutes by foot. Beautiful glass building which is great just for sightseeing but also not so expensive compared to other opera houses if you feel like a concert or an opera. They have all kinds of concerts, so it's worth taking a look at their website.”

Ice Cream Shop
“Best ice cream in town. Our favorite is "bragðarefur" which is an ice cream blend with whatever you fancy. Our favorite mixture is luxury chocolate sauce (lúxus dýfa), bounty and þristur (a type of chocolate). It is perfect for sharing after a trip to the swimming pool. You will be asked about which type of ice cream you want. We recommend the "old icecream" (cold vanilla). The new version is more cream-based. ”
