    When the weather is nice and there is little traffic, this is one of the most beautiful vantage points in the Rhine plain. Wide view to the Black Forest, the Odenwald ...!
    When the chapel is open, the whole thing becomes a highlight.

    The Annakapelle is open on some Sundays, a distant view into the Rhine plain is always given.

    The chapel can already be seen from the A65 and from the top you have a nice view of the Rhine Valley.
    In the evening it is illuminated.

    Here the view is beautiful. You can get something in the hut and then sit here on the benches or in the grass.

    Breathtaking view over the Rhine valley and the Haardtrand. In good weather, the Black Forest is clearly visible in the distance. Hut is open on weekends. Paths of different difficulty levels lead upwards.

    Beautiful pilgrimage chapel - right next to it, the pilgrim can strengthen himself in the hut of the same name.

    "Behind" the chapel are several beautifully designed benches with fantastic views over the Rhine plain. The chapel has a website operated by the Förderverein: annakapelle.de

    The St. Anna Chapel is a Roman Catholic pilgrimage church in the Palatinate Forest. Various pilgrimages to St. Anne take place here every summer.
    From the promontory at the chapel, the view falls over the Upper Rhine Plain to the mountains of the Odenwald and the northern Black Forest.

    Saint Anna, patroness of this chapel near Burrweiler, is the mother of Mary, the mother of God, who is not attested in the biblical texts, i.e. the grandmother of Jesus Christ. However, it is mentioned in apocryphal (that is, not included in the canon of the Bible) writings, for example in the so-called "Protoevangelium of James". There is no historically reliable knowledge about Anna's life, but there are numerous traditional stories that are summarized, for example, in the medieval "Legenda Aurea" by the Dominican monk Jacobus de Voragine. Among other things, she is the patroness of the Anna Church in Düren (North Rhine-Westphalia), where a piece of her skull is kept as a relic.
    In the church calendar, the day of remembrance of St. Anne - together with her husband Joachim - is on July 26th.

    The "Anna-Kapelle" stands above the Rhine Valley and attracts visitors from afar.

    Unfortunately, due to the corona situation, we couldn't get into the chapel, but you can get a glimpse of the interior of the chapel through a small window. Prayer requests can be dropped in a mailbox in front of the main entrance. Around the chapel you can rest wonderfully with a great view (in clearer weather)

    A high-altitude small church with a fantastic view of the Upper Rhine Graben. Unfortunately, the church is mostly locked, but it is possible to look through a small window in the door.
