"Am Mayener Kreuzchen" Kapelle in Ettringen


The small chapel is located - coming from the direction of Mayen - directly at the entrance to the village of Ettringen on the left side. It was built in 1896 on the spot where a stone cross had previously stood - the Mayener Kreuzchen, as the people of Ettringen call it.
In 1894, the married couple Matthias Weidenbach commissioned the master mason Johann Krämer from Ettringen to build the little chapel on their property. In the summer of 1895 it was decorated by Antreichermeister Mathias Lanz, also from Ettringen. On Palm Sunday, March 29, 1896, the dedication took place.
The neo-Gothic chapel, made of local basalt, shows the figure of St. Mary above the entrance and St. Joseph with the infant Jesus in his arms on the outside in the Gothic side niche.
The chapel is still maintained and cared for by the descendants of the Weidenbach family. Thus, in 2015, an extensive renovation of the chapel took place.

Pfarrkirche "St. Kastor" in Weiler

The baroque church was built in 1727 as a hall building made of plastered quarry stone. After the population in Weiler grew steadily until 1906, plans for a church expansion were drawn up by baumeister Rüppel from Bonn. The church was to be extended with basalt stones by the addition of a transept and a choir room in neo-Gothic style, along with sacristy buildings. In 1909 the "new" church could be solemnly consecrated. Particularly worth seeing is the Marienaltar, which was taken over from the "old" church.

Half-timbered village Monreal

The narrow streets of Monreal, its quaint Holy Trinity Church, the massive Nepomuk Bridge over the clear flowing Elzbach and the ruins of Löwenburg and Philippsburg castles high above the town are a perfect destination for an excursion in the eastern Eifel. The red and white half-timbered houses nestle closely together in the former cloth-making town. Not only visually is Monreal an excursion destination that relaxes the soul. Café Plüsch with its cosy interior or the former signal box at the gates of the town are perfect addresses for foodies. The highlight for lovers of handicrafts is the pottery in the old school. Hikers get their money's worth on the Monrealer Ritterschlag hiking trail and are rewarded for the sometimes steep passages with wonderful views.
