Gerðuberg Cultural Center
Opened on 4 March 1983, Gerðuberg is an all-round cultural centre run by the City of Reykjavík, offering a varied programme of cultural events for people of all ages. Its aim is to be a venue of ambitious and high-quality cultural activities of all types and a place where good ideas and new creative ventures can find expression.
Easy access for citizens of all ages is a priority. Forthcoming cultural events are listed in the survey of the City‘s Cultural Affairs and Tourism Division each year; they are also to be found on Gerðuberg’s homepage and in a printed calendar of events that is published twice a year.
