St. Coloman


Where St Coloman made his pilgrimage ...

At the site where the baroque St. Coloman Chapel near Schwangau stands today, St. Coloman is said to have stopped for a rest on his pilgrimage to Jerusalem around the turn of the millennium. Therefore, the predecessor of today’s church, which was built in the 15th century as a field church, was also named after the Irish pilgrim, who is venerated as the patron saint for illnesses of people and cattle. St. Coloman’s Chapel is also one of the most famous sights in Bavaria due to its proximity to the tourist magnet Neuschwanstein Castle. Today’s chapel was built between 1673 and 1678 under Hieronymus Vogler and renovated for the first time in 1791.
