This is a must see, it's tucked away and we found it by accident. The chapel is lovely and the grounds and view are breathtaking.

When I visited the site, the Votivkapelle was closed for renovation. Propably will be closed for a bit (a year or 2?)

The Votivkapelle is a very special place to visit. It is a very impressive chapel to remember a part of the Bavarian history.
