    when you come to the first stairs there is a small cave path / tunnel on the left - nice for the children. ☺️
    .. definitely walk through it. 🤭

    The knight's chapel was built in 1799 as the first park architecture on a steep cliff as a small neo-Gothic building with a south-east facing porch.
    The pillars, arches and the rose window are made of wood.
    The weapons, flags and the coat of arms above the entrance door in the interior of the chapel are reminiscent of the romantic times of the Middle Ages.
    However, the chapel was not used for worship services.
    The original furnishings, the rose window and the halo on the floor indicate that it was used as a meeting place for Freemasons at the time of Duke George I. Duke George I was a Freemason.
    In 1998 and 1999 the 42 steps, the railing and the exterior of the chapel were restored.
    If you go up the narrow winding stairs to the chapel, you have a wonderful view of the castle, the Devil's Bridge, the Werra valley and the park landscape.

    Nice little example of the romanticizing style of neo-Gothic. Rise is worth it!

    The knight's chapel was built in 1799 on a steep cliff as one of the first buildings in the Altenstein Castle and Landscape Park. The columns, arches and the rose window are made of wood. The chapel was never used for worship. The original furnishings, the rose window and the halo on the floor indicate that it was used as a meeting place for Freemasons at the time of Duke George I, who was a Freemason himself. In 1998/1999 the steps, the railing and the exterior of the chapel were restored.
    If you go up to the chapel, you have a wonderful view of the castle, the Devil's Bridge, the Werra valley and the parkland.
