    Holthausen is a small farming community that belongs to Brochterbeck. This place
    is not only very idyllic, but also pious in a special way, because it is here
    the forest chapel Holthausen. Kaplan Plietker laid the foundation stone of this chapel,
    who worked there from 1929 to 1934.
    He was close to the “Apostolic Movement” of Schoenstatt, which promoted the Marian
    unites honor with the claim to take responsibility as a Christian and
    to shape the world as Christian as possible. This movement should be the most dusty of the times
    give the acting church a modern face and inspire the young.
    It was important to Kaplan Plietker to support the young people, contrary to the beliefs of the
    National Socialism in the Third Reich to bind as closely as possible to the Church.
    That the chaplain was not unsuccessful with his request is shown alone
    the existence of the forest chapel, that of young people and craftsmen
    was built by the Kolping family in 1934/35. Even an oil refinery opened in 1943
    still to be built and put into operation.
    It is believed that the worship of war kept misfortune away from Holthausen
    Has. Even now, a district May prayer is held every year by the col-
    ping family Brochterbeck (Ibbenbüren district) in the forest chapel.

    Small cute chapel in the middle of the forest directly on the Hermannsweg. Unfortunately, it was locked when we passed. Maybe next time.

    "The Maria Wegweiserin chapel was built by Brochterbeck's Catholic youth in 1934/35 on the property of the Stallmeier family. It was consecrated on August 18, 1935 on the Assumption of Mary.
    Whole buses with believers used to drive up at weddings, and May services were held here. This Catholic tourism has subsided, but the magic of the small chapel is still very much present today. Whoever walks past the chapel will also stop and possibly light a candle. There are holders for 50 tea lights here, the majority are almost always in use. More than 6000 such tea lights are lit here every year ... "(wanderlogbuch.de/teutoschleife-tecklenburger-bergpfad)
