What an unusual place. The photo best describes the exterior, yes its just slightly funnel shaped and brown. Inside its just egg shaped in wood. No usual church adornments of stained glass windows or painting or gold gilt altars. Which is quite appropriate if you want to contemplate your faith or just think in general in total silence and without... More

Architecturally award winning design of this chapel was the most impressive sight we saw. Imagine a church with no windows. It oozes peace and serenity.

I don't have very much to say about this place. If you're looking to sit in silence then this is the place. It's a pretty building from the outside Other than that it's pretty boring and pointless.

This is worth a look, not just the outside but also inside. It is rather bare but nonetheless inspiring.

The space is for just come and sit and be away from the hectic lifestyle we live nowdays. Totally worth if you want to see the Nordic architect how functional it can be.

Loved the inside of the Chapel. I felt really at peace inside the Kamppi Chapel. Recommend to visit if you have the opportunity. Loved the architecture inside more then the outside.

Smack right in the middle of the Finnish capital is a curvilineal wood-covered bowl-like structure serving as a sanctuary to anyone seeking stillness and quiet. Although marked as a church, it is not reserved for any specific religion. Come inside through the glass entrance to find a small hall before proceeding to the chapel space. Except for the cross pattern,... More

As it is natural the city is somewhat loud. Once the chapel door closes behind you, you find yourself in pure silence. Self meditation, thinking, praying, anything which silence is a prerequisite for is what you can do in there. Walk around and touch the walls...Peace!

Epitome of calm in an unlikely local in the heart of a shopping district in Helsinki. The architecture is not only fine but it speaks to the spare Finnish aesthetic known throughout the world. A must see.

Peaceful, quiet and beautifully designed multi denominational space and what I really liked was the offer of counsellors on hand to talk to, if you needed.
