Even if you are not a church goer, this is a great place to visit and see one of Finland's most famous painter Hugo Simberg's wall paintings. The church is centrally located and easy to reach from the railway station and city centre.

You do need time to consider the frescoes, as they are extremely unusual and thought provoking. It is a pity that the opening hours (in winter) dictate that the cathedral closes at 4 p.m. ....the clergy are sticklers for the time and close the doors...More

Churches are often quite traditional and conventional. These paintings are not. Remember to climb to the 2nd floor and to take a look at the roof, too.

This church has many paintings and murals by the Finnish painter Hugo Simberg. It is a quiet solemn place for meditation and observing art. It also houses classical concerts, check the timetables!

Tampere Cathedral is 111 years old architecture masterpiece, unique building, Finnish romantic nationalism. The paintings and frescos inside by Hugo Simberg are fantastic, something you don't see in churches so often.

As far as I can remember it was 10.00 to 17.00 but ceremonies or services could mean that this is adapted. We went there in the early afternoon at around 13.00.
