Baumholder`s Catholic Parish Church of St. Simon and Judas Thaddäus was built in neo-Gothic style from1882 – 1885.
The kindergarten of the Catholic parish is located in the residential area “Rauher Biehl”.

The Baumholder parish of the Neuapostolische Kirche (New Apostolic Church) was founded in 1932.
For a long time, private apartments of members of the parish and later, classrooms of the local School No.I and the Brühlschule, were used for church services.
The new home for church services, “In der Schwärzgrub 27,” was opened in April 1992 after a construction time of just two years.
