Harpa is a modern concert hall in Reykjavik, Iceland. Opened in 2011, it has become a cultural center in Northern Europe and an iconic landmark of Reykjavik. It is located by the harbor and near another Rekjavik iconic landmark, the Sun Voyager.

The Iceland Symphony Orchestra, Icelandic Opera and Reykjavik Big Band hold concerts in this hall every year. It also attracts musicians and bands from all over the world.

The building was designed by the Danish firm Henning Larsen Architects. Harpa also serves as a conference center.
