"Racing up the stairs to the Tuomiokirkko" Top 5 Page for this destination Helsingin Tuomiokirkko (Helsinki Cathedral) Tip by sim1

  Tuomiokirkko (The Lutheran Cathedral)
by sim1

It is time to climb those stairs and take a closer look at the Tuomiokirkko (The Lutheran Cathedral). There are quite a few steps to climb before you reach the cathedral, hahaha, and crazy enough we decided to race it up the stairs. Hahaha, it must have been that coffee that made us do that! lol :-)) Uuuhhh.... yeah, I lost the race, lol.

The stairs (the black looking block in the front of the picture) aren't that appealing. It makes the cathedral so high up, towering above everything else, and 'distant' from the rest of the world. It almost makes you not want to climb up those stairs. But on top you have a nice view over Helsinki and the square, so it is a good idea to spend some energy to get to the top.

Address: Unioninkatu 29
Directions: Go on Aleksanderinkatu to the senate square direction. 10 min. walking.
