“A Facade fronting a More Interesting Cave Chapel”

Klosterl im Bruderloch
Reviewed 13 September 2016

You can see the facade from the river, but it is mostly just a facade. The original construction dates to about 1450 C.E. and is a chapel in a cave. This may be the highlight of the walk from Kehlheim to Weltenburg Monastery - unless you take special pleasure in feeding mosquitos.

As locals we often went to Weltenburg and "hired" some raftsman to transport us to the other side of the danube river, where we start walking towards Kelheim (where boats are going to and from Weltenburg). In between there is this nice spot which good and not expensive food or drinks (bavarian style).
When one cames across (bycicle or walking tour) I'd definitely recommend a stop.

Hermit Antonius von Siegenburg built in 1450 a small chapel around a rock (Monolithic church or rock-hewn church) in honor of St. Nicholas. With the support of Dukes Albert III and Louis IX (also known as Louis the Rich), as well as some bequests, he built a larger church, ramaprted the monastery and thus arose "Bruderloch" in Traunthal. In 1457, the Hermitage was restituted to its rightfull owners, the Franciscan order, who had established a larger monastery in Kelheim and only used the Hermitage as a summer retreat. The “Höhlenkirche” was built in 1603 as well as the small chapel renovated. Due to the secularisation of Bavaria the “Klösterl” was abrogated in 1803 and became state property. The roof of the Church is the far-overhanging part of the rock. The walls of the ancient Monolithic church are decorated with three frescoes, however, the inner part of the exterior wall has been very damaged by weather influences.
