    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.

    Do not crush the pasque band on the limestone floor, do not pick, do not dig out!

    The Kleine Kamit is a geological and botanical gem in which the rare pasque flower thrives particularly well, as do gentians, silver thistles and various types of orchids.
    Thanks to its lime-rich soil, the Kleine Kalmit also offers the best conditions for viticulture. The Burgundy vines in particular thrive here.

    The Mater Dolorosa Chapel is here on the Kalkberg. The Kleine Kamit has been declared a nature reserve because of its unique flora and fauna.

    The small Kalmit is a nature reserve because of its geological peculiarity and the rare plants that occur there. Please stay on the paths and do not go the beaten track. Otherwise there will soon be nothing left of it.

    The Kleine Kalmit is located in the east of the Palatinate Forest Nature Park near the wine and holiday resort of Ilbesheim. The name "Little Kalmit" comes from the Latin term calvus mons, which means bare mountain. It was created when the Rhine rift valley was lowered 30 million years ago as a deposit of shell limestone.
    The white-gray tertiary limestone is covered by a thin layer of humus. The rare pasque flower and various types of orchids thrive here. The Kleine Kalmit also provides a habitat for numerous rare species of spiders and butterflies. Because of this unique flora and fauna, the Kleine Kalmit was declared a nature reserve.
    In the past, the Kleine Kalmit was considered the weather mountain and home of the weather witches. There were often processions up to the summit cross to ask for good weather there. The Mater Dolorosa Chapel was built in 1851 by a pastor from the neighboring parish of Arzheim to "comfort the poor souls".

    On the top of the Kleine Kalmit there is a small chapel, the Mater Dolorosa Chapel.
    In 2019 the canopy of the chapel was badly damaged by vandalism with a stolen wheel loader and had to be torn down ( -ilbesheim_a138007). In the meantime, however, it is being rebuilt.
