The Rundkapelle.
“St. John the Baptist”

The Rundkapelle (round chapel) is one of the oldest and most significant Romanesque structures in Austria. The chapel’s history stretches back to the High Middle Ages of the 12th century. According to lore, the chapel was built by the Templars on the site of a previous building. The chapel has since served many different purposes over the course of its long life. The building was converted in 1729 into the family burial vault we can see today.
