Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    Above Bürgstadt you will find this church ruin made of red sandstone. The chapel was built by Bürgstadt centcraf Leonhart Gackstatt, but the construction work had to be interrupted in 1630 due to the Thirty Years' War. Since then, the chapel is unfinished in its place. From there you also have a phenomenal view of the Main, Miltenberg and Bürgstadt.

    The designation "ruin" would seem apt in appearance ... but in this case it is not. It is not a destroyed or demolished building, but an unfinished building.
    Why the chapel was not further developed after the war is unknown. In 1630, he gave away the already acquired bells, the installer Centgraf Leonhart Gackstatt, to the Franciscan monastery Miltenberg.

    The oldest ruin I know. A lot of history!
    Definitely worth it!

    One might think that this chapel was destroyed. But it was never completed.

    Beautiful place outside with benches and a wonderful view of the Main Valley. The chapel was written in the previous tips already relevant.

    A very interesting hike on the LT 1 (lovely Taubertal) starts at the town hall in Freudenberg a. Main. Ascent to Freudenberger Burg and the Mautersbrunnen, further on the Nibelungensteig past the imposing ring wall and the Heunesteinen you reach the Centgrafenkapelle and from there you have a wonderful view of the wine town of Bürgstadt and the Main valley.

    One may think that it is a ruin. But this is not the case. The construction was finished at the onset of war and the chapel was not finished.

    Never built. Still not torn down or tinkered with. Thanks for that.

    Old chapel and right next to it there is a resting place under beautiful thick oaks. From there you have a wonderful view

    You can see it and think, again a remnant of the well-preserved ruin of a finished building. Then you read that it was never finished.
    In front of it is a refuge, benches with a wonderful view of the valley

    Above Bürgstadt is the Centgrafenkapelle, from which one has a wonderful view over Bürgstadt and Miltenberg to the Mildenburg.
