Traditional brewery house
The monastery of Schlägl is not only an important religious complex, but today also an enterprise with many commercial and social organisations. One of those is the traditional local brewery. Its beer is available within the region, and the brewery also introduces innovative new products from time to time.

The small chapel at the mill
They do love mills here in this village. So many mills survived over the times that they built a special open air mill museum, and a thematic hiking trail along those historic mills. At one of those mills (today a farm and inn) you will find this lovely little chapel.

A chapel besides the garden
Yes, yet another chapel in this portfolio. A re-visitor might already think this country is all made up of chapels. No, people still live in houses here, but they are passionate chapel builders and have always been. Or asian style shrines never came in fashion here.

A saint, forgotten and ignored
Life is not easy when you are a saint. A dead saint, captured in stone and concrete. You just cannot go out for a beer, or leave place to take some chances. People expect monuments to stay in place, and fear what would happen if they don't. But ignore them when they do and hide their pride with pointless traffic signs.

Wayside cross and a bush
Actually there are no exact rules how to design the environment of a wayside cross. If this is actually done by humans, leading conspiracy theorists believe that all those many crosses actually grow in the forests, and then choose their places at their own will, which is not always understandable to humans, for whatever reason. You have to think like a wayside cross to understand wayside crosses. Only a few people can do that.

A saint on the local square
The locals here in this village are very passionate builder of monuments and mills, and they always have been. In the village center there is a beautiful place with fountains, benches, restaurants and everything else you’ll find lovely as a tourist. And ‘stoned’ saints of course.

Old little chapel, reloaded
People have always built small christian monuments here in this place. Mainly wayside crosses, but then it had to be something bigger, not exactly a whole church, that would have been overdoing things, but a chapel would just make it right. And here it is. Restored just before the millenium, and still looking fine.

Traditional domestic cross
Yes, we have seen crosses in this portfolio before. Probably already too many of them. This one is the domestic variation of a christian small monument, crosses do not always have their homes wayside. Sometimes they enrich a garden. And do that as well as along the roads.

A saint and lots of flowers
They do love colors here. And flowers, they have quite a lot of those. And fountains, this village is fountain-maniac, if you will. The saint doesn’t really care about all the flowers, especially in winter time, when he’d rather be in a warm and cozy place. Not an easy thing to do when you are mounted on top of a fountain.

Old chapel with autumn leaves
Autumn season is heading for a showdown. With whatsoever. Leaves have changed into usual traditional colors and fell off their trees. Chapels usually don't come off trees, they stay just where they are and keep their colors, more or less.
