Pilgrimage site

The Kaulbach district is one of the official pilgrimage sites of the responsible diocese of Speyer . On the Kapellenberg (Kapellenweg) there, the long-time Wolfstein pastor Philipp Hammer , who was also a religious writer, donated the Maria Hilf church in 1875 from the royalties on his books and founded a pilgrimage. Dean Hammer, at the time a well-known speaker at major Catholic events (Catholic days, etc.), is buried by the chapel. During his lifetime, his college friend, the Trier bishop Felix Korum , often came there to preach and hold services.
