In the area of the former magnesite factory near the Schrofenalm (approx. 1,700 m) above Tux-Vorderlanersbach stands the Barbara Chapel, built in 1953 according to plans by Wilhelm Nikolaus and Hubert Prachensky.
The painting above the entry is a work by Max Weiler, the great Tyrolean Modernist artist. The subject is the Holy protection of the magnesite works and its employees, symbolically represented by a large hand supporting the magnesite works, above which the half-hidden crucifix of the Redeemer may be seen. At the bottom left, the evil snake can be seen and to the right is a large guardian angel holding his hands protectively over a worker.
