Grotto of St. Mary

Before moving on towards Orsberg or the Erpeler Ley you should miss taking a little detour to the "Mariengrotte".

It lies east of the railroad tracks right next to a pedestrian path, which leads to the higher part of Erpel via a long stretch of stairs.

This Mary memorial was built as a thank you for providing shelter during the bombing raids during WW II.

Between 1939 and 1945 the grotto was used as a shelter for the village community.
