Castle Chapel

I’m not sure if the castle in the spa town of Bad Wurzach has guided tours or is even open to the public. But its chapel is. Having a few minutes before my bus, I dropped by.

Today the building houses a school, some apartments and a religious order. In the early 1940s it was used as an internment camp.

I’m not sure what I expected from the chapel. Something more ornate perhaps. Maybe at some point is has been renovated.

The castle itself is right in the downtown, built for show not for defence. Kind of like a more ornate and smaller Buckingham Palace.

It has had a varied history since it was first built. Most of the present structure, as I understand it, dates from the 18th century, but the chapel was built early in the 15th century.

It was a bright and airy spot, a nice location for contemplation on a summer’s day.
