Steingaden Things to Do: 11 reviews and 42 photos
This little chapel at the entrance to the former monastery ground is also something that shouldn’t be missed. The door is open during the visiting times of the church. The chapel is dedicated to St. John and was built by Welf VI, so it is part of the original complex. It is said that it should be a remembrance to the church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. It was once painted, still seen in the relief above the entrance and on the vault. Inside it has tombs of counts of the empire (Reichsgrafen Eckbrecht von Dürckheim-Montmartin, to be precise).
