The Jesuits have been present in Molsheim over two centuries. In the 17th century, they erected seven "Fussfall" stations on the pilgrimage route between Molsheim and Maria Altbronn chapel near Ergersheim. The pilgrimages was already developed in Maria Altbronn and the Dompeter of Avolsheim. The Fussfall is a representation of Christs' Passion on a rectangular stone placed on an octagonal column. They invite the pilgrim to kneel down to pray. The first two monuments have disappeared and therefore could no longer indicate the original beginning of the road. Five are originals and the sixth is dated from 1856 standing in front of the Grotto of Lourdes near the Dompeter.
