A small chapel located outside the village of Harmating in Upper Bavaria, Germany. There are many such chapels all the beautiful countryside south of Munich. Great for a day trip and hike, especially as if this case there is a country pub with delicious food and beer garden nearby.
I’ve translated a few details from the website of the Archbishopship Munich
“The chapel was built on Harmating Hill in about 1680/85 for the owner of the local castle. The main building is octagonal with a separate entrance to the gallery and was built on a crossing south of the village. The nearby village commemorates the patron, St. Leonhard, in November. The real celebration, however, takes place on the second Saturday in July including a blessing of horses and a procession of horses and their riders around the chapel to the sounds of the local brass band.”
