This chapel dating back to mid 19th century catches your eye when driving on the road towards Zug. There is a small road to the chapel which makes a great foreground.

Travel Information

In theory you can drive and stop on the little road going down to the chapel. As it is next to a farm house you feel like an intruder though and your car will limit your space to take the shot. It‘s better to park in Merenschwand and walk along the bike path for around 15 minutes, also not to wake up the people in the house next to the chapel when you arrive before sunrise.
Crowd Factor Nearly no other people
Best Timing Sunrise during spring
Sunrise & Sunset 07:04 - 19:38 | current local time: 21:35

I would die of anguish parking near the private farm houses but I found an alternative that might work: at 47.2654212,8.3664574 there is a higher plane with an open field and I don't believe you would disturb anyone. In this case you might want to shoot with a zoom lens but then you might have problems with diffracting the sun from that position. Gorgeous light and wonderful image!

Thank you, Alona The spot you found likely works well for the chapel but you probably won‘t get the horizon in as it seems a bit higher. In order not to disturb the neighbours it is easiest to walk from Merenschwand (there is a bike path leading to the chapel). This will cost you an additional 15 minutes but I was at the place at 5.10h yesterday which is crazy early anyway so it doesn‘t really matter...
