One of the outstanding sights in Wertheim.
St. Kilian’s Chapel
St. Kilian’s Chapel is situated opposite the Abbey Church. Its construction began in 1472. The late-Gothic chapel is considered one of Germany’s most beautiful double chapels from the Gothic period – not least due to its picturesque location between the Abbey Church and charming half-timbered houses. A walkway with an intricate trefoil parapet leads around the upper floor and also features a moulded coat of arms, as well the ‘Wertheim Monkey’ as a symbol of vanity. Originally built as a chapel for the canons, it was used as a Latin school from 1604 onward. But it was restored to its function as a chapel in 1903/04.
