Over the years it’s gotten a bit touristy but still Services as a central point for exploring the City. It’s also one of the few places that’s accessible 7 days a week with most stores and shops open on Sundays.

Lots of restaurants and shopping. It has an old Reykjavik feel to it and you can just about find anything you need.

I guess every major city has a tourist shopping center. This place is bustling with foreigners, but it's fun and safe, and there's plenty to see without spending a cent.

Spent a few days (morning and evenings) wondering around here. Was always busy with people coming and going. Some interesting shops too as well as the Santa post box, and Polar bears outside a shop. My 14 year old loved this

We stayed a block away from this street and walked it daily for shopping, coffee and dining. Safe area, great shopping and places to eat!

Generally, no. We were there late in the summer and things seemed to wind down by 5 or 6pm. The bars and bigger restaurants remained open.
