Bruder Klaus Kapelle

Bruder Klaus Kapelle


The field chapel dedicated to St. Nicholas of the Flüe - called Brother Klaus - is a privately donated and built chapel, a place of silence, meditation and prayer.  Anyone who visits them with this intention is very welcome. May many people find a way to God in this place!

 The chapel is modelled on the hermitage of Brother Klaus and is therefore not suitable for large groups of visitors.  Pilgrim groups with more than ten people are therefore requested to register in advance. The field chapel is not intended as a destination for people interested exclusively in architecture.  The field chapel can only be reached on foot in 10 to 15 minutes via a slightly ascending path. Parking for cars is only possible in the signposted car park on the outskirts of Wachendorf in the direction of Lessenich

Dauerausstellung „Bestimmung Herrenmensch“ - NS-Dokumentation Vogelsang

The former NS-Ordensburg Vogelsang in today's Eifel National Park is one of the largest buildings of National Socialism and was a place of human contempt at that time. Today Vogelsang “Internationaler Platz” is a place that stands for tolerance, diversity and peaceful coexistence. But it is also a place of remembrance culture. The permanent exhibition “Purpose: Master Man. NS-Ordensburgen between fascination and crime ”gives an insight into the life at the NS-Ordensburg at that time.

The castle ruin and fortified settlement of Kronenburg Kronenburg Castle was one of the characteristic medieval hill-castles of the Eifel built on the spur of a ridge in the Upper Kyll Valley. The self-contained impression of the castle ruin, outer bailey and fortified settlement and their adaptation to the topography make the special charm of this site. Kronenburg was first mentioned in a charter of the Abbey Stablo Malmedy in 1277. Today the locality is a touristic attraction in the Upper Kyll Valley.
