    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.

    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.

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

    The knight's chapel also served as a meeting point for the Masonic lodge.

    The "Knights' Chapel" (built around 1800) is proof of the duke's membership in the Freemasonry. The stump of the old keep was still visible from the castle ruins, only a few meters away a rock needle protruded from the slope, which the duke made the location of the knight's chapel.The small building, decorated with a coat of arms, also shows the Masonic emblem and, after completion of the restoration, is now an attraction of the park.At the foot of the Knights' Chapel there was also a famous linden tree that still existed in the 1950s.dewiki.de/Lexikon/Altensteiner_Park

    The Knights' Chapel can be found directly behind the castle.
    The knight's chapel is reached via the steps. You can't go in, but you can peek through the window. 👁️😃🤭
    hp Once you have gone up the first set of stairs, stay to the left. Then you come back into a small cave. 😊 An absolute highlight, especially for children. 😃 It doesn't get boring in Park. ☝🏻 There are always caves.
