The women's cross is a menhir that has been fashioned into a cross. It stands on a roadside on the Ferschweiler plateau in the Eifel, between Ferschweiler, Schankweiler, Nusbaum-Rohrbach and Bollendorf.
According to tradition, the missionary Willibrord, revered in the Eifel region, personally carved the menhir, which dates back to about 5,000 years ago, into a cruciform form and thus became Christianized. In the stone two figure niches are carved, which are surrounded by holes. He is still about 3.5 meters high today.
