The inside is simple but you should take the time to check out the amazing organ. Hopefully there is someone playing while you are there, that was amazing. We also went up to the top and enjoyed the view of the whole city.

We found this church to be very modern and minimalist on the inside compared to other European churches we have been on the Mainland. The pipe organ at the back was beautiful.

We opted not to go up the tower due to the cost and line up.

Church beautiful inside and out. Don’t miss organ pipes overhead at the back. Statue of Leif Ericsson very impressive.

This church is unique outside and so beautiful inside. There are quiet corners where one can meditate and pray. I loved the small prayer space tucked in the corner of the sanctuary. The pipes for the pipe organ are magnificent. I would have loved to hear the organ being played, but arrived to late on Sunday to attend a service.

clearly a special architecture. View from the top is great ($), even on cloudy day. Inside of the church is very sober
