Map / Kummenalp Chapel

The "Maria Königin" (Mary Queen of Heaven) Chapel was built in 1951 by Otto Werlen and is sited on the Kummenalp. The patron saint is Mary Queen of Heaven - Queen of the Angels and the Saints. The veneration of Mary as the Queen of Heaven grew in the Middle Ages. A depiction of Mary's ascension to heaven can be seen on the altar wall of the Kummenalp Chapel. The chapel festival is held every year on the second Sunday in August.
