The forest church MARIA STERNBACH is definitely worth seeing. It was first mentioned in a document in 778. For almost 775 years it was actually a village church with surrounding courtyards and a small village pond. However, the place disappeared by 1564; only the church remained and was maintained by the monks in the nearby WICKSTADT monastery. The plague raged in the Wetterau in 1555. There is a high probability that the residents of STERNBACH died. The depopulated place fell into disrepair. Any survivors found their livelihood with the monks in WICKSTADT.
