The Kleine Kalmit is the highest elevation in the Rheingraben with 271m and therefore offers a unique panoramic view of the Palatinate Forest, the German Wine Route and the holiday resort Ilbesheim. The name "Little Kalmit" comes from the Latin term calvus mons, which means bare mountain. It was created when the Rhine ditch was lowered 30 million years ago as a deposit of shell limestone. There is a chapel on the Kleine Kalmit, unfortunately the canopy was destroyed on October 31, 2019 with a wheel loader.
