    Wonderful view of the Rur valley and the reservoir.
    The forest chapel was built from 1994 to 1996 by the Obermaubach working group and is open to visitors.
    This "Eifel-Bick" is a good place for a rest and there are enough benches available.
    In the immediate vicinity of the forest chapel there is a memorial stone in honor of Countess Alveradis von Molbach (approx. 1155 to 1222).
    The legend of Alveradis can be read in detail on the information board.

    Nice view with small chapel. Tip: Do not take the normal route, but take the small dirt road that leads relatively steep up and can be found in the route at Komoot.

    Well-kept chapel, which was specially built for hikers, therefore unlike so many others, not closed.
    Outside seating with views, some with tables.

    Beautiful view of the Obermaubacher See. The chapel was closed on the last visit only with a sliding bar, also nice from the inside.

    You have to go around the chapel to see the Eifel view. But that is a few 100m further much more beautiful.
