Known for its striking copper dome, Temppeliaukio 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. Temppeliaukio Church is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

Temppeliaukio Church Reviews
Pretty boring but admission was included in my big bus tour ticket so I went in. It is pretty expensive to go in without the ticket being included in the ticket price. more »
An amazing feat of engineering just make a whole in the ground and then dispose of rubble and put an organ and some chairs lots of copper for ceiling and you have a very unique church Rock concerts... more »
Absolutely beautiful church. Very unique design using nature (rocks) as the walls. It was very serene and peaceful when we walked in, as they were singing church hymns perhaps rehearsing for Christmas. Beautiful.
Amazing architecture in the middle of Helsinki. Would love to have visited during church time, but for a small fee, we were able to walk around. Would recommend to arrive early and buy tickets ahead of time to avoid a long queue.
