Known for its striking copper dome, Temppeliaukion Church has been carved from rock in the heart of the city. Designed by siblings Tim and Tuomo Suomalainen and finished in 1969, this distinctive Lutheran church is directly excavated into rock. Explore the church's interior, which consists of rock and marble walls, with the shining copper dome supported by concrete beams at the top of the structure. Note the light shining in through the skylight on what is commonly called the Church of Rock. Take time to listen to the acoustics, made possible by the church's exposed walls. Temppeliaukion Church is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Helsinki Edition.

Entrance 3 euros, free on Wednesdays May-September at 16:00 (if you believe the site). From the bus station to walk 15 minutes.
One of the most iconic places in Helsinki. Try to catch a recital and enjoy the acoustics or just relax inside for a few minutes. It's worth a visit or two.
A small price for a peaceful experience. A young man was playing the piano next to the organ and demonstrated the nice acoustics in this unique church. Despite the fact that we sat next to a lot of other tourists we still got the feeling that it was a unique place to visit.
