We start our Chapel Walk at the chapel Steinkapelle in Angerberg, in the district Embach. The chapel, built in 1756, is situated on a rock and can be reached by a narrow stone staircase. It is the oldest building in Angerberg and it very much reminds at its taller sister, the pilgrimage church of Mariastein, which is going to be the destination of our hiking tour.
We walk in eastern direction along a narrow forest path towards Rading, the start for hiking tours up to Buchacker, the local mountain of Angerberg. Here the path turns into an asphalt road and after a while we reach the chapel Gatterer Kapelle, which was built in 1931 and renovated in 1974. After 15 more minutes we get to the chapel Wartlstein Kapelle,, which originally erected in 1870 had to be rebuilt in 1935 due to decay. On we go along the old main road towards Mariastein and its pilgrimage church. Having once climbed the 150 steps up to the Gnadenkapelle, the chapel in the tower, you will be rewarded by the view of the famous gothic Madonna portrait which, since the late Middle Ages, has been the reason for thousands of pilgrims from all over the world to come to “Maria am Stein” .
