Weiler Vordereifel

In 1330 a church consecrated to Castor von Karden was first mentioned in a document in Weiler. Peter Wtzerath, who was pastor in Weiler from 1693 to 1737, financed the construction of the baroque church, which was consecrated in 1728. The organ was installed in 1785 by the Stumm brothers from Sulzbach and expanded in 1876 by the organ builder Dasbach. In 1906 the plans for the church expansion were presented by master builder Johann Adam Rüppel from Bonn. While retaining the hall structure and the old church tower from 1727, a neo-Gothic transept and a choir were built. The Marien altar from the old church was taken over. In 1908, a high altar was installed by the Porten Brothers art joinery from Münstermaifeld. On June 20, 1909, the consecration of the church took place.

Klosterruine Mädburg Kehrig

The monastery ruins "Mädburg" at Kehrig Not far from the confluence of the monastery creek that rises in Kehrig, the Elz flows around a small plateau about 20 m above the valley floor, bounded on the northwest by a rocky steep slope. Here are world-secluded between tall spruce trees and surrounded by thorny scrub, the extensive remains of a small church, which leads to the strange name Mädburg.
