The St. Ottilia chapel is somewhat hidden on the footpath to the Riedener Mühle, right on the edge of the forest. The very neat chapel was built in 1897 by a certain F.W. Hilger, for the salvation of his eyesight.

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.
