Imagine Peace Tower Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Conceptualized by Yoko Ono — a notable musician and peace advocate — the Imagine Peace Tower on Viðey Island serves as a literal and figurative beacon of world peace. The permanent art installation takes the form of a wishing well, from which 15 powerful beams of light emerge nightly between John Lennon’s birthday (October 9) and the anniversary of his death (December 9). When lit, the pillar of light is visible from the mainland.
On the well itself, the words ‘Imagine Peace’ are inscribed in 24 different languages. The electricity used to power the lights comes from clean geothermal energy.
The Imagine Peace Tower is also illuminated from December 21 to December 31 and during the first week of spring, from March 20 to 27.
Address: Viðey Island, Reykjavik, Iceland
