Photographer's Note

In the forest near the small Village Altenhof, between huge beech trees, there's a small church of pilgrimage called "Dörnschlade". Nearby there's a little house were an anchoress lives who takes care of the chapel and it's surroundings. There's a special atmosphere here at this ridge, especially in spring, when the fresh green wrappes this place of pilgrimage..
During the year there are several processions to this chapel, sanctified to the Virgin Mary, and day in, day out there are many visitors and groups of pilgrims who frequent it.

This place of pilgrimage first was mentioned in a deed from 1414. The today's chapel was built in 1864.

Everywhere in the forests around this small church one can see the destructions of the hurricane in January here. Please look photos in the workshop. This chapel wasn't affected at all ...

Using the map view function at the left you can zoom in (click at +) on the clearing in the forest and see the bright roof of the chapel there.
