The name says it all: The more than 25 km long chapel trail leads hikers past numerous small churches.
If this is too long for you, you can easily shorten the route or divide it into several stages.
The starting point is the town hall in Böbrach.
From there it goes steeply uphill towards St.
Once you have left the village, you dive into the forest, follow the Stations of the Cross and suddenly you are just below the first chapel.
This part of the Stations of the Cross has to be walked back again, then follow the panoramic path above Böbrach and you reach the Penzkofer chapel.
After leaving the village, we took beautiful, secluded forest paths - past the small village of Jägerhaus - to the turning point of the hike, the Katzenbach Chapel.
Then we continue over meadows and through woods past Auerkiel, Etzendorf and Weghof to Böbrach.
In all these small villages there are always good places to stop for refreshments and the chapel trail can be completed in one day.
You should start early enough, though.
More detailed information about the chapels and their stories can be found in the Tourist-Info in Böbrach.
Conclusion: An extended full-day tour with a lot of nature and rural piety.
