"Jagabild" – the chapel on the Haugstein!

On the plateau above the Haugstein ridge, surrounded by the rustic mixed alpine forest,  we are standing in front of the idyllic “Jagabild” chapel. Its legendary founding history can be read at the Donausteig rest area “Teich”. The chapel surprises with its colourful and three-part altarpiece – a must-see! The small forest chapel inhibits the beech trunk where according to legend 300 years ago a hunter was hung upside down by poachers. A white deer rescued him from his certain death. 14 artistically designed crucifix stations lead to the “Jagabild”.
Recommendation: The chapel can be illuminated with a switch, then the magnificent altar shines especially brilliant!
Additionally a Donausteig panel tells you something about the Haugstein, the highest peak of the Sauwald and its special landscape features.
