Not much left of the chapel but must have been impressive in its days. Some of the information was in English which made a change. You pass it on the way up to the castle.

We came across the Wernerkapelle en route to the Burg Stahleck castle. It was interesting to read about its origins while admiring the beautiful building itself. The location also offers a beautiful view of the Rhine.

What you see is what you get. Interesting looking ruins of what was once a chapel on a hill, but once you get there, the shell is all there is. Surrounded by fencing.
