The secret garden near Hallgrimskirkja.

The secret garden near Hallgrimskirkja.

Attention art and sculpture fans. The Einar Jónsson sculpture garden is steps away from Hallgrimskirkja and a lovely, quick, and free stop to add to your Reykjavik adventure. We made a stop here on my I <3 Reykjavik walking tour and it was a delight.

Jónsson’s sculptures are a departure from the neo-classical works found in most European cities and border on surrealism.

The large building next to the garden is a museum of Jónsson’s work, should you wish to see more.

You can find this place pretty easily yourself, or sign up for one of I <3 Reykjavik’s tours and you’ll get to visit with a knowledgable guide who’ll fill you in on the history and significance of Jónsson’s work.
