    Mary figure in the RodsteinJust over five years ago, the citizen of Oberkochen Eugen Weber with the consent of the Chairman of the Realgenossenschaft Oberkochen Bruno Balle and Bantel's mediation and the toleration of the nature conservation authority at the district Ostalbkreis in the Rodstein-Apri set up a statue of Mary, so that a kind of "Lourdes Grotto" emerged is. The Rodstein in Oberkochen has always been wandering from pilgrims to the summit cross on the 14th of September every year after the feast of the cross exaltation. It is noteworthy that in over a hundred years on the Rodstein now gradually the whole Holy Family with Christ Cross, Joseph Chapel and Marian Grotto is at home.
