Marburg an der Lahn Off The Beaten Path: 21 reviews and 64 photos
The little church of St Michael, consecrated in 1270, served as cemetery chapel for the hospital and the Teutonic Order, later also for citizens of the town. Locals affectionately call the cute little church "Michelchen". It is situated on the hillside above Elisabethkirche, surrounded by the former graveyard with some old tombstones and trees.
At the moment (2009) the interior of the chapel is undergoing restorations and cannot be visited. The romantic location nevertheless makes the detour worthwhile.
The chapel is hidden - to find it, climb the stairway among the houses on the other side of Elisabethstraße opposite the steeples and main portal of Elisabethkirche.
