The Rachel chapel is a chapel on the mountain Rachel in the Bavarian Forest.
Set in 1212 meters above sea level on a promontory above the Rachel Lake Chapel goes back to an original building of 1885, built by a mirror Forst master named Leithäuser. This completely built wooden chapel burned down after the Second World War.
1951 was a new building on the same site, but repeatedly made entirely of wood. Inside, the new chapel was decorated with carvings of Spiegelau Lord carver Johann Lentner.
After this second Rachel chapel was also fallen victim to a fire on March 19, 1972, it was rebuilt in the same form again and re-equipped with created by Johann Lentner carvings.
In the late 1990s, the state of the chapel had greatly deteriorated by weathering and aging, so that a thorough renovation was necessary, which included a nearly complete faithfulness to the original construction of the wooden building. The work was completed with the inauguration on 24 June 2000th.
Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
