Wegerandkapelle  DEINHARD's

Wayside Chapel The chapel at DEINHARD's

Remarks by Eta Dewies

In the historic connecting wing between the new building and the historic structure there is a chapel under the roof, which was conceived and realised as a complete work of art by the artist W. Gies.

Gies was inspired by the elongated room with its open beams to design a "wayside chapel". In memory of the popular wayside shrines, depictions of Mary and St Christopher have been incorporated into the two gable walls. Both are deeply rooted in popular belief.
