The Michaelskapelle is a baroque pilgrimage church on the Michaelsberg near Untergrombach on the western edge of the Kraichgau hill country.
The first documentary mention of a chapel on the Michaelsberg comes from 1346. According to an inscription dated 1472 that was reused in today's chapel, the builder Hensel Frosch built a new late Gothic chapel in its place, possibly on behalf of the Speyer bishop Matthias von Rammung.  The chapel fell into disrepair as early as 1584.
The current baroque chapel was built from 1742 to 1744 by order of the Speyer prince-bishop Damian Hugo von Schönborn. In 1803 the chapel was closed and sold as a result of the secularization; From 1855 to 1857 the church was bought back under Pastor Ignaz Kling and after the renovation the church services and pilgrimages were resumed. Three altars, a baroque pulpit from the former Hambrück parish church, ceiling paintings and the figures of the fourteen helpers are remarkable and decorate the interior of the church. In August 2007 the chapel was renovated.
