Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur - The stand (the name translates to “the best hot dog in town”) is a Reykjavik institution; expect a line regardless of whether it’s before sunrise or after. Whatever the hour, order one with everything: fried onions, raw onions, ketchup, rémoulade, sweet Icelandic mustard (380 kronur). (NYT 36 Hours)
The Pond | "Tjörnin is mostly surrounded by a park called Hljómskálagarðurinn (Music Pavillion Park) which gets very popular in good weather. The southern end of Tjörnin links it to the Vatnsmýri swamp, a small bird reserve with paths open to the public except during egg hatching season. Built into Tjörnin on the northern side is Reykjavík City Hall."
