The supposedly original wooden statue of the Virgin Mary is kept in the church at Neukirchen.
The former chapel in the forest no longer exists, instead, a new chapel was built and renovated several times. She is dedicated to St. Anne. Both in the sanctuary and in the St. Anne’s Chapel, there fountains whose water has a curative effect is attributed, comparable to the source of Lourdes. The wells, however, are not accessible to the public, is at the chapel, a pump, which can be used in the summer of pumping water from the source.

The relics of the Saint Claire, virgin and martyr from Priscilla, a catacomb in Rome, Italy is also found inside this side.
