  little chapel ontop of the mountain
by Audrey118

There is a nice quiant little chapel which overlooks the Krummbach valley below.

Austrian Emperor Franz Josef used to frequent this mountain resort in his private wagon. The memory of Franz Josef's wife "Sisi", who was assassinated shortly after the railway was opened, is honoured in this mountain top Elisabeth Chapel.

But on other hand, while I was at the foyer of the church entrance, there is this phone looking gadget and you put in 50 cents euro and press English you get to listen to one helluva information. It is said that the building structure was originally intended to be for weather monitoring house, but becos they ran out of money, the project was abandoned...and then somehow it became this chapel!!!
