“Stunning building from the outside”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

If you are in Helsinki you must visit this catherdral with the senate square, it is beautiful! There is a lot of steps though, please be aware that there is no access for those with wheelchair or prams to the entrance of the building,there is a ramp up to the first floor but not to the final entrance, we therefore could not go in..shame. Still, we took lots of pictures of the views!

“Symbol of Helsinki”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

When you google Helsinki, you will have a picture of this cathedral, so I hardly think you can miss it
The building is beautiful, but as all lutherian church, inside its very sober, so the visit might last for 10 minutes
Good to know, several tram stops there

“Stunning building”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

The Lutheran cathedral is a stunning building from the outside. Make sure you've had a few session on your step master before heading up towards the entrance. It's lovely to see that the inside is very basic and beautiful at the same time. It has to be on your hit list of places to visit when visiting Helsinki.

“Beautiful, stunning, steps a killer!!”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

Visited Helsinki as part of a Baltic cruise and this cathedral attracted us to it, really beautiful although getting up to it takes a while, it's defiantly a rocky moment when you reach the top.
A must see when visiting Helsinki

“Iconic”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

The Lutheran cathedral is an iconic building near the centre of Helsinki. It's grandeur is amplified when looking up from senate square where you'll find plenty of tourists and locals alike. It's quite simple inside, I'd give it a miss, but you MUST visit the cathedral on a trip to Helsinki.
