The indications of a possible pion condensation at the LHC are summarized. The condensation is predicted by the non-equilibrium hadronization model for 2.76 TeV Pb+Pb collisions at the LHC. The model solves the proton/pion puzzle and reproduces the low pT enhancement of the pion spectra, as well as the spectra of protons and antiprotons, charged kaons, K0S, K*(892)0 and ϕ(1020). The obtained parameters allow to estimate the amount of pion condensate on the level of 5% from the total number of pions at the LHC. The condensate is located at pT < 250 MeV.
