All About A Chapel.

Another Burgenland Jewel...

Whenever I walk within sight of this chapel, I am in awe at the beautiful setting chosen to build it. Much history and many life stories have passed by it and if only walls could talk...
One can meander for miles and never loose sight of the chapel. The proverbial beacon of hope and solace.
Not to be left out, the big sister ( or should it be big brother? ) is not far away. The Deutsch Schützen church seems to be casting a protective net over its villagers. A celestial guardian...
About 500 meters from the chapel is this romantic retreat. Yes, it is run down, but you must admit it has romantic potential. Forest on one side, rows of vines around it and a view of Deutsch Schützen in front of it.
A sweeping path leading up to the chapel. Walking on this path takes one back to a life before tar and fast vehicles. Now and again a tractor might motor past, but otherwise the serenity of this rural picture is complete...
