This German Protestant church in Kaartinkaupunki (on the southern part of Unioninkatu, near Tähtitorninmäki) is certainly one of the loveliest in Helsinki. It was consecrated in 1864. The Germans who lived in Helsinki in the nineteenth century had their own parish circle with regular German services; in 1858 they were given the right to form their own congregation and this church was the result. The church is very attractive and has a romantic atmosphere. No wonder, then, that this is one of the most popular wedding churches in the Helsinki region. On Sundays the church often has an evening service at 11p. In addition to that, Sunday services are held at 11a.
