Bike Touring Highlight
The Klausenberg is an elevation in the Rhinehessen Wonnegau, at whose feet the Worms Abenheim district is located.
The Klausenberg is known for the chapel built on it St. Michael and gives the place Abenheim the nickname Klausenberggemeinde.
Countess Agnes von Nassau geb. von Leiningen (wife of Otto I of Nassau) received permission in 1298 from Worms bishop Emich I. to found a monastery in Worms-Abenheim, as the remainder of which is believed to be the present Klausenberg chapel. Agnes was a grand cousin of the bishop. In 1299 she reaffirmed this foundation with her sons Heinrich and Emich.
The Klausenberg Chapel was consecrated to the Archangel Michael and is therefore called St. Michael's Chapel. It is open once a month for worship and beyond a popular place of church marriages and is located on the Rhine Hessian Way of St. James.
