Factbox

  • The author of the plan and the authoritative operator of the chapel building was the local pastor Bachmann. In 1950, at the feast of St. Stephen, the small mountain church was inaugurated, in honor of the Swiss national saint “Nicholas of the Flüe”. The local reaper Andreas Pretzl created the wood sculpture “Madonna with Child”. She was donated by a Walser. The wood-carved antependium relief “Hirsch an der Quelle” comes from L. Bachmann, a niece of the pastor. The altarpiece represents the patron saint.
