This Neon Chapel In Berlin Is The Most Instagram-Worthy Church Experience Ever

This neon chapel is so Berlin. Where else would you expect to find modern art mixed with a highly Instagram-able backdrop and memorials to Nazi resistance fighters? It's a weird mix, but that's why we love Berlin.

Tucked away within the Dorotheenstädtischer Cemetery, this memorial chapel installation by James Turrell might just be the most aesthetic church experience ever.

The chapel stands in the center of the cemetery, surrounded by graves of German poets, artists, and philosophers. Each evening at 9 pm the chapel lights begin to change, mimicking a Berlin summer sunset.

The LEDs slowly dissolve into shades of turquoise and ultramarine, the reds, pinks, and burnt orange. The show lasts for 2 hours, giving visitors time and space to experience a moment of futuristic, spiritual beauty.

Part of what makes this Turrelll piece so striking is the juxtaposition of old and new. Walking out of the minimalist, candy-color space and into the somber graveyard is like walking from a spaceship and into a period movie.

Planning a visit? Turrell's neon chapel will be open for visitors all this summer. Check out the cemetery's website here for visiting details.
