Bike Touring Highlight
In the middle of the Kempter Wald lies this small chapel on the roadside, inviting you for a short, contemplative break. Just stop for a moment, enjoy a moment of silence and then continue relaxed and full of energy. :)

Small chapel from the year 1938. It is worth to visit it from the inside.

An oasis of peace and quiet in the middle of the forest!

Very nice chapel in the Kempten forest. Nice to pause for a moment. Sometimes caution is advised, the gravel road is often used by cars as a racetrack and you get extremely dusty. The dust can then be washed down in the Alpe flour block 4 km away 😉

The Kempter Forest (also Kempten Forest) is a large area of forest east of Kempten (Allgäu) in the districts of Ober- and Ostallgäu. The Kempter Forest reaches heights of up to approx. 960 m above sea level. NHN south of Hauptmannsgreut and near Bodelsberg.
The Kempter Forest is part of the Allgäu moorland and hills in the foothills of the Alps, which were shaped during the last Ice Age. One of the largest accumulations of boulders in the entire northern Alps dates from this period, with over 4000 boulders, with the largest (Dengelstein, Beichelstein, Baltenstein, der Stein) reaching considerable sizes of over 3000 m³ and 20 m in diameter.
The forest is the headwaters of several streams and small rivers (e.g. the Kirnach and the Durach), whose waters later flow into the Iller or the Wertach.
The Schwäbisch-Allgäu hiking trail leading from Augsburg to Lake Constance (also a section of the Munich Way of St. James) crosses the Kempter Forest. It leads past the forest chapel built in 1938 in the middle of the forest.
