Marienkapelle (Hermannsreuth)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The listed Marienkapelle in the Hermannsreuth district of the Ebnath community was built in 1912.


The chapel was built in 1912 on the basis of a vow made by Alois and Theres Sticht . Today's owners are the Schecklmann family .


The chapel is a bright plastered building with a covered with sheet metal gable roof without a tower and roof skylights (the planned roof turret was not carried out). Access is through a pointed arched door, the building also has pointed arched windows.


On the altar, in a triptych, there is a middle picture with a Pietà , on the left of it is a statue of St. Catherine of Siena and on the right St. Nepomuk in a choir shirt and a cross in his hand. These are embedded in neo-Gothic frames. On the Altarmensa there is still a picture of St. Anthony of Padua with a baby Jesus and a lily. Antonius was the namesake of one of the founders. The altar is separated from the rest of the room by a low iron grille. The altar was made by the Ebnath carpenter Adolf Rubenbauer .

In the chapel room there are other figures, on the left Saint Joseph and Saint Michael , on the right the Sacred Heart of Jesus and a replica of Our Lady of Altötting .
