Maria am Wege chapel

Scharnstein, Oberösterreich, Österreich

"It should be a chapel in front of which many people feel the need to stop, to quietly contemplate, pray, ask and thank".

The chapel was consecrated in May 2015 and planned by architect Josef Ullmann. He said of his work: “A timeless floating crystalline body. The place looks upwards. - The inner emptiness is a meditative haven of calm, a return to one's own self.

The chapel is open to the public and freely accessible at all times.
