If you don‘t feel well then this is the right place, it provides a feeling of deep peace and quiet. A place that gives comfort to all those in need of encouragement. Just like the locals back in the 17th century who came here to mourn for the victims of the plague. It was a must to bury them on this shore of the river, therefore a small Trinity Chapel was erected in 1661 amid the forest at Kropfbühel area. Locals call the precious little building Bichl Church or Plague Chapel.

Closing your eyes you will feel the infinite strength coming from the red/white chapel. A place of silence where you refuel your energy.

Author’s recommendation

Take your time and make a small detour and follow the path directly at the Fischbach. There you can see pictures by the artist Albin Egger (*1868 - †1926). These were created during his stays in Längenfeld.
