Tips and hints

POI - Pestkapelle

Since plague victims were not allowed to be buried on the other side of the river in the 17th century, in 1661 the small filial church of the Holy Trinity was built - locals call the church also  Bichlkirche or Pestkapelle - in the middle of the forest on Kropfbühel.
