Description

According to legend, around the year 980 Saint Wolfgang (at that time bishop in Regensburg) sought protection from a thunderstorm on his way to Bohemia under the Wolfgangsriegel.

In his honour, a wooden chapel was built on this site in the first half of the 17th century, which was replaced by a stone one in 1776.

This chapel is a replica of the chapel on the Falkenstein at the Wolfgangsee.

Along the Kreuzweg via the St.

Wolfgangsweg you reach the Wolfgangskapelle.

The route climbs steeply past Wolfgangsriegel to Platte, Böbrach's local mountain.

The rest of the way crosses the forest road to Frath and leads to Sternknöckel, where the Zellertal lies at your feet.

In the east the view reaches to Bodenmais with the Silberberg.

Opposite is the Kaitersberg-Arber mountain range.

A wonderful view that rewards the effort of the ascent, a short way back through the high forest along hiking trail 7 back to Böbrach and back to the starting point.
