In the forest below Hohenwart there has been a spring since ancient times: "Heilig Brünndl". Its water is said to have healing properties in eye disorders. Next to it, a chapel still stands.
If we continue from the Auleitenkirche on the road towards Höhenwarth and follow the path in the forest to the left downhill. A legend tells that in a forest near Frankenmarkt a picture of Mary hung on a tree. To protect it from storm and rain, it was taken to the church in Frankenmarkt. The next morning it hung on the tree again. After that, a chapel was built here.
