Place of Silence
The Stadium’s Chapel was opened with an ecumenical service just in time for the 2006 FIFA World Cup. According to many experts, it is the most beautiful stadium chapel in the world. Constructed in an oval form with finest leaf gold, it offers visitors from all over the world a piece of home with Bible verses in 18 different languages. It is an ecumenical prayer room: Catholic and Protestant Christians use the chapel together.
In the heart of the stadium
The chapel is located in the area of the main grandstand, directly between the players lounge and the players tunnel on level -4, only a few meters from the playing field. Since the 2006/2007 season, the chapel has been open at every Hertha BSC home game, and prayer sessions take place in the chapel on a regular basis. Those responsible from Hertha BSC, Hertha fan clubs, athletes and football enthusiasts come together here and draw strength.
During the 2006 FIFA World Cup, players from the German national soccer team visited this prayer room and prayed here before the game against Argentina. Players from other nations also met in the chapel to recharge their batteries before the game. The stadium chapel is available to athletes in the Olympiastadion Berlin as a Christian prayer room as well as to people who want to celebrate their marriage or the baptism of their child in it. A new, custom-made organ provides the musical framework for the service.
