It tells of Veit Imlin, who moved to Palestine with the Crusaders and was taken prisoner there. His wife Hildegund and his son Hans waited a long time for his return home. When Veit finally returned after many years, his wife had married another man. Veit sadly withdrew into the forest, where he now lived as a hermit. It is said that Hildegund and Hans repeatedly visited him in his hermitage, whereupon the new husband became jealous. He had Veit captured and beheaded. Namely where the little chapel stands today,
Bridges, a well basin and a small pond with a stone-lined inlet, as well as benches and tables for resting are available.
