Ecumenical Chapel in the HafenCity

It is a place of contemplation and calm in the middle of the emerging HafenCity: in the small ecumenical chapel, visitors have the opportunity to come together to talk and to be reminded of God's presence together.

With a blessing ceremony and a festive procession under the advent motto "Lift up your heads, O ye gates! and be lifted up, O ye ancient doors!" (Psalm 24) the Hamburg churches opened their ecumenical chapel - a project of the "Brücke - Ecumenical Forum of HafenCity" - in the HafenCity during Advent 2008.

The chapel was designed by the architect Stephan Schmid, himself a resident of HafenCity. The simple building with around 50 seats was built from wood and glass and the gable wall is decorated with an orange cross. The altar was made ​​of an old ship's plank. The building was constructed mainly from donations. For more information, visit the website of the Ecumenical Chapel.
