The new church in Reykholt was consecrated on July 28, 1996, designed by Garðar Halldórsson. She is famous for her acoustics. Sound design was done by engineer Gunnar H. Pálsson.The church has old church bells, the Frobenius organ of Reykjavík Cathedral, award-winning stone windows by Valgerður Bergsdóttir and a baptismal font made of clay, a Norwegian gift. The baptismal font and altarpiece of the church in Reykholt date from around 1500, now the property of the National Museum. A new cross was erected for the foundation of the church in the summer of 2012, see more under the tab Items of Reykholtchurch…
