Lovely interior and exterior. In the shadow of Observatory Hill and welcoming of guests. Immaculately kept, along with everything else in Helsinki. Definitely worth a visit either before or after Observatory Hill.

We ran to this red brick church when we walked from the pier to the city center and we really were impressed by the beauty of it. We did not go inside, because we did not have enough time.

The red brickwork is outstanding interspersed with exquisite decorative details. The spires are lovely and tower heavenwards. Completed in 1864 it served the German congregation in the city.

Situated on a hillside overlooking the city, this magnificent cathedral is worth a visit. The architecture is awe inspiring as is the interior.

We went to see the German church in town. The building is quite impressive. It was in Red brick. The interior is of good design as well.

Tucked away up the hill, past Old Market Hall is the German Church. Unfortunately, it was not opened at the time I visited it. However it was worth the walk up the hill as it is a beautiful old church. Set in a quiet neighborhood...More

This is one of the few german churches I have seen. It is clean and pristine. A beautiful church. All the white throughout gives a pure feel.
