    No place is better to meet yourself.
    The way to the chapel is already part of a special experience, you should not abbreviate it.
    If you would like to experience this field band for yourself and in peace, it is good to visit them if the weather does not necessarily invite you to go hiking and during the week instead of at the weekend.
     During summertime, the chapel is open from 10:00 to 17:00, during the winter time from 10:00 to 16:00.

    Trudel and Hermann-Josef Scheidtweiler commissioned the construction of the chapel dedicated to St. Nicholas of Flüe. The married couple Scheidtweiler and the renowned Swiss architect Peter Zumthor have associated happy circumstances.
    It is worthwhile to visit this chapel. You will find a place that is more of a special sanctuary from the inside than from the outside.

    The chapel is dedicated to the Swiss patron saint Nicholas of the Flüe (1417-1487). Further information at feldkapelle.de

    "The field chapel dedicated to St. Nicholas of Flüe - called Brother Klaus - is a place of silence, meditation and prayer."
    Again and again worth seeing is the windowless tower. The interior looks like a cave, the walls clearly show the structure of the spruce trunks. The room is open at the top, it looks into the sky, but also light and rain fall into the otherwise dark room.
    The chapel is open from 10am to 5pm in summer and from 10am to 4pm in winter, closed on Mondays.

    This field chapel is dedicated to St. Nicholas of Flüe - called Brother Klaus - and has a unique architecture.
    She has no windows. Light falls from above through the open ceiling and into the walls embedded small - filled with glass - light holes in the interior.

    Very impressive atmosphere in the chapel. A surprising contrast of the architecture inside in this layered concrete exterior. Be sure to visit! 👍

    For the very worthwhile visit of the chapel, the weather should provide a little sun. Is important for outlooks and insights!

    The Archithekt Peter Zumthor literally at the inauguration: This chapel is a TOUCH.
    He's right. It seems to the visitor something.

    From the outside she may not look that great, but the atmosphere in the chapel is beautiful.

    A special feature of the region. Be attentive and not premature - you may only notice in retrospect what was apparent to you in it.

    An architectural highlight in the middle of the Voreifel - who would have thought ... the place should be visited, if you are in the area, but not on Mondays, because the chapel is closed

    Very interesting architecture. Especially recommended when the sun is shining. Inside there is a little wow effect.
