    The Rochus Chapel stands in the immediate vicinity of the monastery Seligenthal. Built in 1709, they wanted to St. Rochus, patron saint of prisoners, the sick, doctors, pharmacists and gravediggers. Thank you for the avoidance of the red Ruhr. Even today, the Rochuskapelle is pilgrimage in August on Rochustag.
    We found the gate of the chapel open and could go inside. A small altar and a bench invite by candlelight (you can light tealights here) for devotional lingering.

    The figure of the saint above the simple altar of the chapel shows this in pilgrim clothing with scallop shell and pilgrim staff as well as with other attributes typical of Saint Roch: he has a plague wound on the thigh and a dog bringing bread accompanies him.
