An Afternoon Chapel

The Reiche Kapelle was the private place of worship of Duke Maximilian I and his wife and it was here that the Duke's precious collection of relics was kept. These relics were considered priceless, because the saints associated with them were believed to intercede between human beings and God. The miraculous powers attributed to the relics made the Reiche Kapelle the spiritual center of the entire Residenz, and in accordance with its importance, the chapel was furnished and decorated with special magnificence. The floor is paved with colored marble and other valuable stones, while light shines through stained glass windows and the altar’s silver reliefs glimmer, surviving furnishings of the original chapel.
