The little chapel of Notre Dame des Bois is one of the hidden treasures of Pays de Bitche. Next to the Erbsenweiher Lake, the altar of this sandstone chapel is lined with a stone tabernacle contained in an iron box. It has a crucifix and four candlesticks. During the last war, the roof of the chapel was damaged and the pews, chandeliers, objects of worship and the statue of the Virgin have since disappeared. The wall inside were covered with inscrptions: the soldiers on the Maginot line had engraved their names and the chapel had even been used as a stable for their horses. During th renovation in 1974, a new statue of the Virgin was blessed and the small bell that had been found was repaired.
