    The Wurmlinger chapel on the Kapellenberg (about 474.4 m above sea level, also called Wurmlinger Berg) near Wurmlingen in the district of Tübingen in Baden-Württemberg is a popular excursion and pilgrimage destination. The Romanesque predecessor building was built in 1050 during the tenure of Pope Leo IX. built there as grave chapel of the founder Count Anselm of Calw. The Romanesque crypt dates from around 1150. The Gothic successor burnt down in 1644. The surviving Baroque chapel was inaugurated in 1685. In 1911, the artist and church painter Carl Dehner painted a picture of the chapel.

    From the village of Wurmlingen at the foot of the mountain, a Way of the Cross built in 1687 leads up to the chapel, which is about 130 m higher. Around the chapel dedicated to Saint Remigius is the cemetery of Wurmlingen.

    The chapel was for Ludwig Uhland inspiration for the poem The Chapel. The Austrian writer Nikolaus Lenau was also inspired in 1832 to write his poem Die Wurmlinger Kapelle. [2]

    The mountain chapel is open from May to October in good weather, usually on Sundays from 10am to 4pm. At other times, the key can be borrowed from the Catholic parish office in Wurmlingen.

    According to legend, Count Anselm of Calw has ordered that he should be placed after his death on a car to be pulled by two oxen. Where they stopped, his funerary chapel was to be built. It is believed, however, that these oxen did not climb the Kapellenberg, but stopped at the foot.

    For beautiful tours through the upper Gäu to Rottenburg and Tübingen through the nature park Schönbuch back, you will find a nice large parking lot at the Ammertalhalle in Gültstein. Great bike paths lead you to remarkable sights. Have fun on the tours

    The closer you get to the chapel the more beautiful it is.
    Nevertheless, I usually turn right before, over a small hill and then on a nice trail down to the bike path.
