    Great freestanding church ruins with benches to linger. The right rest and photo place, be sure to visit.

    Father's Day was a nice little celebration, with cake, wine and grilled. Nice for a break

    The Beller Church is a church ruin from late Gothic, which stands in the open field and is clearly visible from afar. It is used for various outdoor events.

    The local poet Heinrich Bechtolsheimer chose the Beller church several times as a place of action in his historical narrative "Between Rhine and Donnersberg" (1903). In chapter 5 he describes them as follows:    "Not far from the village, in the middle of the open field, stands an old, ruined church, the so-called Beller Church. It is said that in the place where the church stands there once stood a village called Bellen, which had been destroyed during the Thirty Years' War. The thing is uncertain, at least a village of this name has disappeared from the people's memory. Much more correct is the assumption that the church has its name from the barking poplars that once surrounded it. Also, that the church was still used, nobody knows how to remember. Presumably, in times that have long passed, it has been a pilgrimage church to which the pious pilgrimage every year. The roof is destroyed, the windows are smashed, everything that belongs to the interior of a church is gone, but the walls, though gray and weathered, are still undamaged, and the window frames are still preserved. "
