Girsterklaus Chapel



brief description: 

Located in the small district of Girsterklaus in the commune of Rosport, the chapel sits on a hill, nestled amidst a landscape of fields, dotted with a few rural cottages. Pilgrims have been coming to Girsterklaus for centuries to worship at the ancient shrine of the Virgin Mary, making the chapel the oldest place of pilgrimage in Luxembourg. Ancient tombstones, encircled by a stone wall, surround the chapel, which is also made of stone. A small entrance on the side of the chapel leads inside. Lovely motif of a picturesque, historic ensemble in a quiet situation. Parking available in front of the chapel. Easy access via country road.
