Saint Sebastian Chapel was built in 1637 on the grounds of a cemetery where victims of the plague were buried. The town was engulfed with the plague in the 17th century and all the people who succumbed to it were buried at this place which was once the edge of the town (even though now it forms the heart of Garmisch-Partenkirchen). This chapel is dedicated to Saint Sebastian and Saint Roch who are both the patron saints of the plague sufferers. In 1925, the cemetery was converted to a World War I memorial. The cemetery is now a small park with a fountain and has a plaque with the names of the people who lost their lives in the First World War.
The sculpture of St. Sebastian placed seen here was created by G. Neuner by using the drawings of Joseph Wackerle. Visit the chapel to pay your respects to the soldiers and to simply see a part of Bavaria’s history, up close.
