Autobahn chapels invite people to reflect, relax and pray. They offer a sense of security in a place that is otherwise highly impersonal and hectic.
In this piece for the Tagesthemen TV news programme, Martin Schmidt reported on "peaceful oases". The programme was prompted by the 40th anniversary of the St. Christophorus Kirche in Baden-Baden, which formed the backdrop to the film. The Autobahn Chapel Siegerland in Wilnsdorf was featured in Caren Miosga's introduction, symbolically representing the link between churches and how they are represented in pictograms.
