  • Beautiful Gothic chapel next to the church of St. Nicholas. Beautiful frescoes and a remarkable altar. Just take a look.

  • Very ornate yet still spiritual place to sit and reflect on our maker. There was no charge to visit. Deserves a visit  more »

  • Originally the building was intended as a funeral chapel of the cemetery that until 1848 surrounded the main church of the city. The first reports of the cemetery date back to 1335, but only in the 13th century a chapel dedicated to St. Michael was built. The current building dates back to a reconstruction from the 1420s to the 1440s and features a two-storey octagonal structure and a pyramid roof. The upper floor, the one normally open to the public, is accessible through two Gothic portals with six steps and consists of a single room with a vault decorated with ribs. Three altars are kept in it: the altar of the Immaculate with the Bambin Jesus, from 1769 the work of Mathias Pussjager, a Gothic altar at 1400doors from Germany and purchased in 1895 and, finally, the altar dedicated to Santa Barbara dating back to the 1600s and commissioned by the brotherhood of the coopers always at the work of Mathias Pussjager, to which were later added side statues works by Gregor Schwenzengast. The lower floor, originally intended for ossuary, consists of a vaulted room supported by four granite columns.
