The trail of reflection that was opened in 2005 will lead you to these chapels. The most beautiful chapels in Galtür are the “Rearkappali”, the “St. Antoniuskapelle” in the community of Wirl, the “Maiswald” chapel, the “Barbarakapelle” at the Bieler heights on the Silvretta High Alpine Road (Hochalpenstraße) and the “St. Martinskapelle” in Tschafein. Today the Galtür citizens still preserve their churches and chapels like a treasure, and a little hike to the various chapels is definitely worth while.
