Wachendorf - Bruder-Klaus-Feldkapelle

This chapel, dedicated to Nikolaus von der Flue (aka "Brother Klaus") a Swiss hermit and ascetic, was erected 2005-2007 following a design by the internationally renowned Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. It was donated by local family, owner of the fields around, who had met Peter Zumthor when he built the Diocesan Art Museum "Kolumba" in (near) Cologne.


With the support of many volunteers this minimalist tower-like, windowless chapel was created. It is located isolated in the fields, about half an hour walk from the next parkig lot.
