Now that the complex has been uncovered, the foundation walls of the once two-aisled red sandstone building are clearly visible, as is the square choir, above which the tower probably rose. The nave, which is divided into four bays, is twelve meters long and about six meters wide. The side nave attached to the south is about three meters wide. The best preserved are the three massive, stocky pillars that separate the main and side naves. Rectangular cover plates and sharp-ended separating arches, which used to support the vaulted ceiling, are mounted on the pillars. The total height of the room may have been about five meters.

Professional tips:

      Season: All year round
      Time of day: 07:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. depending on the season
      Weather: Sun-cloud-mix
      Lenses: 16-35 mm, 24-70 mm, 12 mm fixed focus
      Filter: Polarizing filter, sky filter and soft gray gradient GND 16, GND 8 depending on light conditions to darken the sky.
      Tripod: Yes
      Location: About 30 m next to a farm, a path leads up to the chapel ruins on the right side. The best way to take a photo is to choose your photo position so that the round arches lead as a line to the camera. A wide angle, e.g. 12-24 mm, is very suitable. The position of the shown photo was almost directly at the wall of the farm along the path leading to the chapel.

Directions and location:

Coming from Landstuhl, the Verena Chapel is hidden on the main road at the entrance to Mittelbrunn just behind the entrance to the village. It can best be reached via the L469 from Landstuhl-Atzel, which is directly on the A62.
