Chapel of St. Lawrence in Bitschji

The St. Laurentius Chapel was built in 1991/1992, prompted on the one hand by the 30th anniversary of the Jungwacht (1992) and the 700th anniversary of the Swiss Confederation (1291 - 1991). On the other hand, the Jungwacht wanted to create a special place in the open air, which would serve as a meeting place for club events, but also as a place of silence and faith. 

The chapel stands in an inviting location above the hamlet of Bitschji, at the entrance to the "Unnertal", on the much frequented hiking trail Geimen-Trämel.

Underneath the chapel is a fireplace for barbecuing.
