Kamppi Chapel, Helsinki

(4.3/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Savor a moment of quiet reflection or prayer inside the contemporary Kamppi Chapel. While it seems to contradict its surroundings, this site is nicknamed the "Chapel of Silence." Built on one of the busiest streets in Helsinki, the chapel provides a calming atmosphere inside a tranquil space positioned in an otherwise hectic area. Step inside the chapel, which welcomes people of all faiths. Examine the contemporary architecture, designed as a part of the World Design Capital program of 2012 by Kimmo Lintula, Niko Sirola, and Mikko Summanen.

  • Minimal wooden chapel in the very heart of Helsinki - worth a visit for the contemporary Finnish architecture and a moment of silence.  more »
  • Kamppi Chapel is a wonderful oasis of peace in the midst of the hectic Center of Helsinki The building is a magnificent way designed and built. Everyone should visit the place out, sit down quietly for a couple of minutes and enjoy the peace which here is.

  • This place is amazing. The chapel is beautiful, open to all, and is a great place for a pause with silence, right in the middle of Helsinki.
  • Very small but so beautiful and quiet. A must see.
  • Small architectural treasure. Am oasis of spiritual relaxation, but at times it can be rather crowded, with people coming in and out all the time. Choose your visit times wisely.
