  • Frauenkapelle (Womens Chapel)

    Around 1475 the Frauenkapelle was built at the market square of Marktoberdorf. It was dedicated to the blessed virgin. Its position in the center of town was chosen to allow also the handicapped and old people the visit to the church service. Over the years some changes were made like increasing the size of the church tower in 1710.

    The restaurant is situated in the hotel and the building used to be called “Beim Oberjäger” (At the master hunter’s). The hunter was also in charge of providing drinking water for the castle nearby and in front of the house there was a water trough, with constantly running water originating from the sources in the Riedle. The building is a traditional listed building and has been managed by the same family since 1950.

    The comfortable and relaxed restaurant specialises in seasonal cuisine and particularly the classic beef steaks as per the menu “Luggi’s Steakkarte”. When I visited the restaurant was very busy, but quickly cleared. I would have scored higher except that when we came to order desert we were told the chef had gone home.

    Tuesday to Saturday: 11.30 am to 2.00 pm and 6.00 pm to 10.00 pm

    You can park your car on the parking of the parish church St. Martin and from there take the footpath (stairs) down to town. On the way you will pass most of the sites that I have placed here on my page. You will find the stairs if you keep on the left side of the church between church and castle.

    After visiting the parish church St. Martin I started my walk down to town and found that there is a grotto along the path located more or less beneath the church. Trying to take a photo through the gate I noticed that it is open to public.
