    This chapel in Unterammergau is dedicated to Saint Joseph, the nursing father of Jesus Christ. Like Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist, he is a man on the threshold from the Old to the New Testament. Joseph was from the house of David, one of the twelve tribes of Israel. He was a carpenter by trade and the fiancé of the Blessed Mother Mary.
    The feast day of Saint Joseph in the saints calendar is on March 19th, and on May 1st the church celebrates the feast of "Joseph the Worker".

    The Josefskapelle, also called the chapel at Josefsflecken, is a path chapel in the Ammergau Alps in the Upper Bavarian municipality of Unterammergau. In addition to the veneration of St. Joseph, the chapel serves to commemorate those who died in the mountains

    About halfway to the Pürschling. Here you can recharge your batteries a little.
