St. Michaelskapelle

The lower floor of this Gothic church houses the parish ossuary, used since 1600, to which the bones from the small churchyard where transferred after 10 or 20 years of burial. Of its 1 200 skulls, 700 bear the date of death, age and profession of the deceased and are painted with garlands of roses, laurel, ivy or oak leaves.
