The atmospheric small chapel of Saint Ambrose, the patron of the beekeepers, forms the end of the trail. In former times and today St. Ambrose (* 339 in Trier / + 397 in Milano), the patron of Milano and Bologna, is worshipped as the patron of the beekeepers, the bees, the gingerbread bakers, the domestic animals and learning. On the 7th of December we celebrate the feast of Saint Ambrose.
On the scrolls in front of the chapel of Saint Ambrose you will find texts from the Bible in German and Italian on the subject of bees and honey. The bee is a symbol for diligence and devotion to the community. Honey represents the sweet food which is given from the Lord to the people.
"So I have come down to deliver them from the power of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and spacious land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite."
Exodus 3, 8
