A very pretty chapel in the heart of Landstuhl. A small graveyard behind it is worth looking at if only for the sense of timelessness that's not available to most Americans.

My wife has walked by this a dozen times. I saw a review on Trip Adviser and realized we had walked right by it the day before. Definitely worth seeking out. Not hidden just does not stand out from the street. Amazing art inside and to realize how many centuries this has stood here and how many generations of people... More

This is a lovely place that provides the soul some relaxation and refreshment away from the rest of the world. This little annex was built in the 1300s. There used to be more to the building but it was destroyed centuries ago. You can go inside anytime of day just by opening the little latched door. There is a gate... More

It's a neat chapel with interesting murals from medieval and renaissance times. Worth a quick peek if you're in the area. It's free. There are German WW II graves in front and there is a Barbarossa bakery across the street.

Very cute little church, the graveyard is much more intriguing. Easy to see from the street, no need to make special arrangements. Lots of great shops surrounding. Walkable from the Landstuhl MTC

The chapel itself is very cool to see as it has old frescoes on the wall and ceiling. But the haunting and interesting part of this site is the graveyard of German soldiers killed in WWII from the Landstuhl area.

A nice little chapel that you can enter the foyer of. Modest interior, but nice to take a look at. Outside are the graves of 80+ fallen from WWII. Their names are listed in a book inside.

We've driven by the kapelle many times and have never stopped to check it out. We were pleasantly surprised when we did. It was modestly decorated but beautiful and the gardens are small but well maintained.
