    A meditative and serene experience
    We came out of the metro/shopping center on to the square, not expecting to see this striking chapel. While we had read about this chapel prior to arriving in Helsinki, we did not realize that it would be by far the most visually pleasing building in this area of the city. The chapel is minimalist qua design, and at the same time tranquil, calm, and peaceful. While difficult to put in words, the feeling I had in the chapel was meditative and serene. A recommended experience for everyone.

    Great Little Chapel
    I loved this little chapel. It’s quite unique on the inside and out. The design outside is like a wooden egg, and inside is very peaceful with soft lighting and wood furnishings. It’s a nice escape from the city noise near the city center.

    Listen to Your Own Thoughts
    Not a religious type but found this one of the most unique experiences of peaceful silence. Nothing inside or outside can distract. Very few people visiting in this cold February day. Total silence, peace of mind, inward focus as a bonus... I was lucky that everyone visited while I was in it respected the photo restriction.

    Peaceful atmosphere
    Came to Helsinki on a business trip and had a free afternoon to walk around the town. This was a lovely chapel to go to - interesting architecture. It was nice to see the tourists respecting the "silence" aspect of it. I sat in here for about half hr just enjoying the peace and quiet.

Would be nice to see inside but…we’ve tried visiting 3 times over the past 14 months at various times and the opening hours outside of summer seem to be short and variable.

Tried visiting today at 4:00pm (mid February) only to find it closed from 2:00pm. On its website it says it’s open until 8:00pm.

Probably won’t bother trying again

Sadly there was a sign on the door that said it was closed because of abuse of services, or something like that. Not sure what all that was about, maybe schoolkids running and yelling? So did not get to see the inside. From the outside it is a bit of an eyesore to be honest. Not a fan of this alas.

A beautiful place to visit and a nice break from things. Very quiet and such a beautiful structure. Very unique and definitely worth a visit.

A big deal for so little.
Even if it was free, I wouldn’t consider it a must-do. It’s very small and simple. And yes, its vibe is sort of magical in a way, as you can actually HEAR SILENCE, and feel complete quietness for a while, but it’s still not much of an attractive spot.

You pay for a sensation that sometimes you can experience by your own means, in your own space.

Not much to say, but a really different kind of cool place to visit. Just another part of wonderful Helsinki to see if you happen upon it

The chapel of silence itself is beautifully serene and calm, especially to take pause from the cacaphony outside of the shopping centre and restaurants.

However, I am really conflicted — having to pay an entry fee for the chapel simply because it is ‘tourist season’ doesn’t bode well. Rather than a spiritual oasis, it feels opportunistic and more of a commercial part of the shopping centre, particularly as, beyond the summer months, it’s free entry.
