Thank you, Billy! It was about an hour's walk. When we arrived there a Holy Mass was just being celebrated so we stayed for a while. It's a beautiful place. Here is another photo of the chapel taken in spring! Cheers, Anne

Greetings Anne, Another fine example of how people get back to nature for being closer to their god. What a beautiful setting. Thanks for taking that walk so you could show us this picture.

Thank you very much for your comments, Rich and **Tamás*! We don't visit this place very often, but I like going there. There is also a bell in the chapel that people can ring. Greetings, Anne

Wonderfull photo Anne! A very nice chapel in the woods, looks like it is for outside services, by the benchs in a round shape on the forground of the picture. Can it be a Oak Forest? if so, or not, it might be a Christianization of a Pagan Sacred Place, where the ancient pre christian religions have their services, maybe Celtic people.

There's a lot of places like this one in Europe, where Roman Catholic church on the beginning of their word spread in Europe, instead of destroying the local religions and sites they Christianized them (in some cases).

Cheers, Alex

Thank you for your comment, Alex. This forest is a mixed forest, there are beech trees, oak trees, pines and many others. This chapel was first mentioned in 1748, then destroyed in 1789 and rebuilt in 1948/49. Greetings, Anne

Stimmt, May! Das andere Foto hatte ich im Frühling gemacht, da sah der Wald anders aus. Liebe Grüße, Anne

Ein schönes Bild vom Winterkirchel ist dir da gelungen, liebe Anne! Wir haben uns durch deine schönen Bilder aus dieser Gegend inspirieren lassen und sind am letzten Sonntag vom Paddelweiher über das Winterkirchel zur Dicken Eiche gelaufen. Like
Dir noch eine schöne Rest-Woche! Liebe Grüße, Susanne

Vielen Dank für den netten Kommentar und das 'Like', Susanne! Freut mich, dass euch meine Fotos inspiriert haben, die Gegend selber mal zu erkunden!:) Ward ihr auch im Wanderheim "Dicke Eiche"? Liebe Grüße, Anne

Muntanella on April 13, 2013

Ja, wir waren auch im Wanderheim "Dicke Eiche". Wir haben aber nur etwas getrunken, da wir zuvor in dem kleinen Lokal am Paddelweiher gegessen hatten.
Liebe Grüße, Susanne
