Stopped in the chapel and surrounding grounds. Beautiful design and setting. No service underway when we visited but walked through.

Recently went to another wedding at Heinz Chapel. The church is beautiful! I can see why it takes a year to book for a wedding. Definitely worth stopping by to see the church. They don't have Sunday services.

On the campus of the University of Pittsburgh, Heinz Chapel is a beautiful, majestic building that has been used for thousands of weddings and other functions over the years. Only a minute's walk from the Cathedral of Learning, these two facilities are worth the time to check out if you are in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh. In fact, cross... More

We did not have time for a tour, but there are written guides inside the entry door for visitors. It is a breathtaking space and if you only have a few minutes to enjoy and reflect it is worth it.

My wife and I got married there 21 years ago and went back for the chapels 75th anniversary in November of 2013. It is still just as beautiful as ever.

When you are in the area, even if you have no event going on at Heinz Chapel, I recommend a stop there simply to take in the beauty of this place. It is even a relaxing escape for those who work nearby to spend some of their lunch break.

The staff of the Chapel are great to work with and are understanding of the important event that you sponsor or participate in the audience. The setting for the Christmas Caroling is a life time experience.
