Default Chapel Saint Vitus upper Bavaria

This is the Chapel St. Vitus behind the Castel Marquartstein in upper Bavaria. Nice, but also private. I had the luck to take a look inside.
The first image is a "out of the camera" HDR Image, i think it is OK for that, i had no tripod with me, so the altar is not as sharp as it could be.

Hi Juggernauter,

Thanks for the post of the church! I had wondered if you could find a way in (legally), LOL. Very nice picture of the inside of it, elegant and beautiful place isn't it? It is called St. Vitus, how unique. You are a very fortunate individual to be able to not only find places like this but to gain access too. Awsome!

Yes this is the one you have see from a distance in the other image.

Most of the chapels and churches are named by a Saint here in this area. It was luck to go inside cause the sexton was there :-)

He is something like a caretaker. He cleans the church, he prepares the church the mass, he is a gatekeeper and so on. Overall he is a personal Asisstent to the pastor.

Well from what you have presented, he is doing a great job. Do they hold just private services or do they envite others as well to worship? I would have loved to see those paintings and the ceiling over the alter in detail, I wonder how old the paintings are. (I hope I am not asking too many questions).

The chapel was built in 1200 and 1843 completely destroyed by fire. In 1849 it was rebuilt. The paintings were a gift of a cardinal and archbishop when he saw that the chapel was destroyed. I think the paintings are probably from +/- 1800. The picture in the middle shows Mary with Jesus as a child and two saints. The left image again Mary and St. Simeon and the Christ as a child and the right picture the Holy Nepomuk.

There are older paintings in chapels in bavaria.

In the chapel not only private services are held. On high holy days, the public is invited.

Dont worry, there are not too many questions. ;-)

Both are a pleasure to look at. I was about to ask if you had a gorillapod like me because of the low angle in both, but I see you mentioned you didn't have a tripod. Very nice clean shots!
