The Marienkapelle is a chapel dedicated to the Virgin Mary in Aachen-Burtscheid, Germany.

The chapel contains as the most important component the newly made miraculous image of Mary, whose representation corresponds to the original in the Baroque pilgrimage church dedicated to Our Lady in the Belgian pilgrimage site of Scherpenheuvel-Zichem. The previously used French name Montaigu for Scherpenheuvel derives from Latin mons acutus = Spitzer Berg or Scharfer Hügel. This led in the vernacular to the name Klein Scherpenhövel or simply chapel for the Burtscheider Marienkapelle.
