On the eaternmost point of the harbor is Harpa, Reyjavik's concert hall and conference center, which opened in 2011. The building instantly became a city landmark with its dramatic honeycomb casing—designed by renowned Icelandic-Danish artis Olafur Eliasson—which was constructed piece by piece and reflects both the sky and the ocean. With state-of-the-art acoustics, Harpa encompasses a variety of halls and is the country's premier music and event venue, with films, concerts and performance occurring here every night of the week. Additionally the space contains half a dozen stores, two restaurants, and a long-distance bus stop. Purchase tickets for a guided tour (1,750kr per person; 45 min.) that take you behind the scenes of each performance space and explain the design features at length. Multiple tours are offerred during the summer, with fewer in winter.
