There is something so simply beautiful about these ruins. The history behind it is very interesting. It was built in the late 1200s but completed in the 1400s. The chapel was built to honor the death of Werner, a young boy who was rumored to...More

Not much left of the chapel but must have been impressive in its days. Some of the information was in English which made a change. You pass it on the way up to the castle.

We came across the Wernerkapelle en route to the Burg Stahleck castle. It was interesting to read about its origins while admiring the beautiful building itself. The location also offers a beautiful view of the Rhine.
