    What a perfect place for a chapel! 300 steps lead up to this wonderful vantage point high above the village of Ebensee am Traunsee. Sit down and just enjoy!

    In 1690, a wooden calvary chapel was built in place of today's “Berghaus”. Inside the chapel there was a small holy grave, in front of the chapel 3 wooden crosses were placed. The weather affected the wooden chapel so much that after 80 years a new building was considered. After a long search, the current location was chosen and the chapel was rebuilt.
    In 1779 the new church was consecrated with a mass.
    In 1785 the church received a small bell, a few years later a second bell and in 1813 a small organ. Over 300 steps lead up to the Kalvarienbergkirche, the wooden steps were replaced by stone steps in 1822. In 1827 the Calvary was made accessible.
