Worth looking inside, it’s a quiet haven, the wooden construction is simple and well executed. A great place to reflect.

In the heart of the city. Probably the noisiest part of it you could have a moment only for you. I really enjoyed my time there. Highly recommended.

Love the simplicity of the structure. Also enjoyed watching everybody in agony that they couldn’t take pictures inside 😊 put your phone down and be still, what’s wrong with everyone these days !

This is a lovely chapel with a quest to help people suffering with depression. It is UTTERLY silent (as the name would imply). The outside of the structure is just as beautiful as the inside. Highly recommend.

This silent church was one of our best on the itinerary....with all the hustle and bustle outside....this place is a sanctuary to have that little peaceful moment to yourself.Definitely will visit again!

My husband and I were very interested to visit this chapel. I love silence and interesting architecture. Unfortunately, the chapel was not silent. Loud people were outside the entry doors and their noise resounded in the chapel area.

Free entrance, nice people. Very simple area. You find there Bibles in different languages. everything you must do is to be silent. Our little daughter was silently snoring and it was horrible, everybody could hear it in that pkace :-)))
