The Jakobskreuz has had a new attraction since October 2020 - the Antonius Chapel. On the initiative of the mountain railway owner KR Anton Pletzer, the Kitzbühel master carpenter and artist Max Biembacher created a small, puristic mountain chapel in a four-month construction period directly in the base of the Jakobskreuz. Craftsmen from the Pillersee region have contributed with their craftsmanship. The marble for the altar comes from Kramsach.
