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.

This is a jewel of a chapel. Many weddings and concerts take place there all year long. Well worth a trip to see Pittsburgh's own St. Chappell knock off.

This chapel is on beautiful grounds and has an old world feel on the inside. they had us in an out for the wedding without feeling like we were rushed (yet there was a wedding before and a wedding after)/ There is very little parking however so prepare ahead for where you will park.

The Heinz Memorial Chapel is located in Oakland across from the Cathedral of Learning, another must-see. The Chapel is known for it's beautiful stained glass windows, which are certainly worth viewing. It's a peaceful place to stop by and a very popular spot for weddings.

I'm not real big on visiting churches but this is very special. The stained glass windows are fantastic. The windows have a story so be sure to get a tour to explain.

This is a moderately sized Gothic cathedral featuring very tall stained glass windows. It's well worth a half hour when visiting the Univ. of Pittsburgh.

Took my niece and her boyfriend to see the chapel and we were all impressed. The stained glass windows are beautiful and each one tells a story.

Attended the annual Christmas concert of the Heinz Chapel Choir. It was exceptional, as always. Gorgeous chapel with wonderful acoustics. Give it a try!
