    The dreamy little forest chapel from the 17th century is located in the Eger Forest near Bad Neualbenreuth. The first wooden chapel building in front of it was donated by Magnus Bartels. He was lost in the forest and couldn't find his way out before dark. In his nocturnal prayers to the "Old Lord God" he vowed to donate a chapel if the latter would lead him out of the forest the next day. Indeed, in the morning a white stag showed him the way - and Bartels kept his vows.

    If you stay next to this chapel in the "info house" you will experience a pretty interesting animal life !!!

    Great for a short rest on the two benches and a short prayer. Also ideal to reach by car and the starting point for beautiful hikes.
