What people are saying:

A refreshing design from the usual European churches/cathedral. This church is carved out from a rock and its unique UFO exterior design is a must see for architecture buffs! Doesn’t take long - about 30mins to explore and right in town.

Additional Information


Whether your interests lie in music, history, architecture or religion, the Temppeliaukio church offers you a unique opportunity to view a monument unlike any other in the world. The commencement of World War II in 1939 prolonged the development of the structure, which resumed in 1961 with an entirely new concept after the brothers and fellow architects Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen won the second competition held for the design of this Lutheran church. Built directly into a natural rock formation that is flooded with light through a glazed dome, the church often doubles as a concert hall because the exposed rock walls provide excellent acoustic qualities.
