It's made of wood. It's quiet inside. It's free to go in. It's next to Kamppi Arcade. Might as well pop in on the way to Henry's Pub.

Go and sit down and enjoy the silence! You feel close to nature since the chapel has been completely built from wood. Very beautiful architecture.

After a long and busy day of shopping and sightseeing, it was nice to be surrounded by silence for 5 minutes. I didn't expect that 5 min there calmed my mind but it really did. Entry is free.

I loved an opportunity for rest and a cup of tea - and the inside of the great hall is amazing and breathtaking by its architecture and general spirit.

This (at the time of my visit) was the 3rd highest-rated attraction in Helsinki on this site. I expected good things - I love weird little sound experiments and things like that, which is why the Kamppi Chapel of Silence was such a truly baffling experience. You enter a kind of antechamber at the side, and when you get to... More

Calm, quiet and with a warm atmosphere. The narrow space feels like it draws the mind upwards towards greater things. A meditative space.

The church is very unique and extremely interesting looking. The location is very central which in our opinion is quite odd as it doesn't really fit in its location. Very peaceful and calming place.

This place is located right in the center of Helsinki near Kamppi metro station. The chappel is simple, made out of wooden planks and wooden everything. It is peacefully quite and if you want some time out to reflect, this is one place where you can do so. If you are a visitor, visit this place for the sheer architecture... More

The architecture of this church is very cool as it sits in the middle of downtown Helsinki. The building is impressive yet understated from the outside. The inside is simple, quiet, and calm. Definitely worth a stop if only to sit for a few moments to reflect.
