"I need coordinates to reach Saint Laurentius chapel by car, for enjoying landscapes of the Mosel Valley." (posted 05/21/2014)

Trittenheim is a rather small town. One can’t miss the road to the chapel. Coming from Trier, take the first road left, continue through the vineyards; one cannot but get to the chapel.
