Ráðhús Reykjavíkur (English: Reykjavík's City Hall) is situated by the Tjörnin (City Pond) in Reykjavík. It houses the offices of the mayor of Reykjavík and a large 3D map of Iceland. Since January 2017 it has also been housing Reykjavík's official tourist information, Guide to Iceland, where travellers can get information about Iceland, book tours, accommodation and car rentals. The city hall is sometimes used for art exhibitions, functions or live music gigs.

The building was constructed in 1992 following an international competition won by architects Studio Granda.
