The «Lëtzebuerger Guiden a Scouten» have a special relation to this chapel conforming to the historical background: during World War II, scout partisans made the pledge to build a chapel in honorable recognition to the victims of the Nazi Terrorism, especially the scout victims, and dedicated it to “Notre-Dame” (patron of Luxembourg) once the war would be finished. The chapel was nearly entirely built by scouts and it was sacred on the 1st of May 1952 by the Bishop of Luxembourg in presence of the Chief-Scout, Prince Jean of Luxembourg (who became later on Grand-Duke of Luxembourg). The former General Commissioner once said that this chapel helped a lot to heal the war related wounds. The chapel is free of charge to the lodgers of the chalet or the camping but can also be rented separately for religious services.
