Helsinki Rock Church

Whilst the Rock Church’s incredible architecture—built into the face of a rock—never fails to surprise an admiring holidaymaker, this world-class destination’s residential surroundings make for a bizarre and one-of-a-kind attraction no visitor will ever forget. Built in 1969, the Rock Church, or Temppeliaukio Kirkko of Helsinki, Finland, was constructed after winning a unique architectural competition, the judges praising the structure’s use of the huge glacial remains standing amidst houses in this historic area. Unlike any other European building of its kind, the Rock Church’s exterior is inconspicuous enough to be overlooked, but the stunning and devotional interior simply can’t be missed.

  • Admire the Rock Church’s tomb-like architectural style designed by the brothers Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen, as well as the ceiling’s unique copper wire.
  • Enjoy a concert at the Rock Church, whose rock walls provide astounding acoustics, making this attraction a regular venue for Helsinki’s most popular performers of classical music.
  • Attend a Lutheran church service in Helsinki at the Rock Church, where services are held every Sunday at 2 PM.

Whether travellers are visiting the Rock Church as a sacred destination or architectural masterpiece, the world-class attraction can be accessed via local tram, train, or rental cars. Taxis and double-decker tour buses are abundantly available in the area to transport visitors to and from this incredible destination. Several hotels are located within a half mile of the church, making it easy to reach on foot for people staying in downtown areas. Along with offering church meetings on a weekly basis, the Rock Church is open 7 days per week, for free, for anyone interested in the structure’s incredible history and traditions.
