I think that the title kind of summarises how I felt in this wooden designer church. A place of silence and for some silence. Very Finnish thing, the love of silence! If you pass through, step in, sit down and soak it in for a...More

I went based on some other reviews and due to the fact that it was in a short walking distance from my hotel. While it is an interesting idea and decent architecture, I found it unappealing.

Unfortunately when we got to the church it was about to close, at 18.00hrs, so we missed going inside but the external features also looked very interesting. There was a street market of vegetarian types of food near by, where I tried some vegan stuff...More

The Chapel of Silence is an interesting Chapel. The silence of the chapel is strongly contrasted by the busy and bustling central Helsinki location - next to a shopping center and hotel. Worth walking into see the modern architectural design made out of wood.

This interesting designed chapel is made up of wood—spruce--is located in Kamppi Plaza. Services are not held here. Instead it is a place for peace and tranquility. Photography inside the chapel is “not allowed.” The 38-foot high structure encloses a number of comfortable, relaxing benches....More

Stunning architectural marvel of a chapel, with silence broken only by the muted cacophony of the outside world. Open freely to the public with votives available by donation and a 1€ charge for bathroom usage

Incredibly nice to get into such a quiet place right in the center of the city. What you experience in this space is an unusual feeling that otherwise only occurs when there is a power failure, a total silence, the only thing that is heard...More

The chapel looks cool from the outside, smooth wooden structure. Inside it's quite plain. And quiet of course. If you are in downtown Helsinki it is worth a minute of your time.

If you're taking trem no 2/8/9 you can stop by Simonkatu and walk for like 5 - 10 minutes. If you're taking trem no 3, you can stop by the Main Railway Station (Rautatieasema) and heading through Sokos building and cross... More
