The small Gothic St. Nicholas chapel was built in 1450 by hermit of Antonius von Siegenburg. With the support of Dukes Albert III and Ludwig the rich, as well as some bequests, he built a larger church and ramparted the monastery, thus "Bruderloch" in Traunthal arose. In 1603 the small chapel was renovated and the "Höhlenkirche" built, this monolite Church belongs to one of the few monolite churches (rock hewn churches) of Europe with a natural roof (formed by means of an overhanging rock). Under the Secularization of Bavaria monastery "Klösterl" was abrogated in 1802 and became State property.
