There is an information board attached to the Pützchen that says:
The Pützchen is an ancient prayer and pilgrimage site. According to tradition, Saint Lambertus was baptized in the 7th century at a source that still exists today. The spring is considered a "Willibrodus spring" and because of the healing water, the Pützchen became a much visited pilgrimage site.
The age and origin of an image of grace of the painful mother are unknown. A first pilgrimage is documented in 1718, a first stone prayer house was built in 1795. Around 1850 the fountain (Pütz) was bordered and a chapel was built over it, which was expanded in 1933.
