The Black Plague Chapel
Mar 2018 • Business
The “Pestkapelle” reminds us of the two worst events that ever happened to Oberstdorf: The black plague and the great fire of 1865 that consumed almost the entire city center.

The latter one because the fire destroyed the original chapel that stood nearby.
But as the name suggests, it mainly reminds us for the black plague (“Pest” in German) that befell the small town in 1634/35. With 800 deaths, two-thirds of the entire population was killed back then.

The chapel that you can visit today was built in 1950. It is opened rarely, so you must be lucky to catch a glimpse of its interior.
