Fodor's Review

Across the plain from Lögberg stands the church and the gabled manor house of Þingvallabær, where the government of Iceland often hosts visiting heads of state. Free one-hour tours of the area are offered on weekdays in the summer, leaving at 10 am from the church. Note that the house of Þingvallabær is the official summer residence of the president of Iceland and can only be admired from the outside.
