The chapel on the southern edge of the city is a real gem. In 1275, a soul parish Valkenstein was first mentioned in the records of the Diocese of Constance, which belonged to the Lords of Falkenstein and Ramstein in the Middle Ages under the patronage of St. Erasmus as a separate church.
In the choir is a Lamentation of Christ, which dates from around 1515 and is an important work of late Gothic art attributed to the sculptor Conrad Rötlin from the imperial city of Rottweil, who worked especially for Emperor Maximilian I. Nowadays it is considered one of the most beautiful lamentation groups in southern Germany.
