    Worth seeing pilgrimage church up there on the Rochusberg. The environment is terrific, especially the view of the Rhine with its islands and from the other side of the Rheinhessen hill country.

    The St. Rochus Chapel is a pilgrimage church that is located southeast of Bingen am Rhein on the Rochusberg.
    A first chapel was built at the time of the crusades by returning crusaders.
    In 1795, during the French occupation of the Rhine Valley, it was destroyed by fire from German and Austrian troops and exploited by the French occupying it. The second building was built in 1814 after a typhus epidemic.
    In 1889 lightning struck the roof turret and the chapel burned down to the brickwork.Today's building was built from 1893 to 1895 according to plans by the Freiburg cathedral master builder Max Meckel.

    Already visible from a distance from all sides. A visit is definitely worth it, as is the inside of the chapel. From up here you also have wonderful views of the Rhine, the other side of the Rhine and the vineyards
