    Of the built in the 15th century Heilingskirche stands only the western gable front. The pilgrimage church was consecrated to the "Three Maries", Maria Jacobi (Cleophas), Maria Salome and Maria Magdalena.
    The Ruinenkirche shows that it does not require any magnificent buildings to be a sacred place. It is the honest charisma together with very simple symbols of the faith that show the visitor the peculiarity of the place. This very simple decor of the former pilgrimage church with its remains of ruins, reduces a church visit to the most important, namely the faith - not distracted by gold and pompous symbolism. And the steady wind reminds one of the bond with nature, the overwhelming work of God.
    An impressively powerful place of peace and quiet!

    The Heilingskirche was probably built between 1433 and 1469. Today only the western gable front stands impressively on the hill. The former stately church was visited before and allegedly also after the Reformation by pilgrims. The church collapsed after the Reformation and was canceled in 1564. The Wirsberger built their first school house from these stones.

    The ruin Heilingskirche stands impressively on a hill near Neufang and is located directly on the FrankenwaldSteig and the FrankenwaldSteigla Goldener Falk path. You have a wonderful view of the Kulmbacher country.

    The ruins of Heilingskirche, a unique relic from the 15th century. Very interesting, plus the information board with the entire history. I just thought it was a shame, the remains of the recent tree felling auction are in front of the ruin, tree trunks, branches, everything that comes up. You could also deposit on the nearby edge of the forest. The beautiful green tree in earlier pictures no longer exists.

    The ruin suggests what a great building that must have been. Great all-round view of the Kulmbacher Land. We recommend.

    One can only guess from the ruin how big this church must have been. Great all-round view of the Kulmbacher Land. We recommend.
