    THE intersection between Siegtal and Hellertal.
    On extensive tours you practically pass by here :-)
    Named after the nearby summit "Kreuzeiche" - or was it the other way round? :-)

    The cross was planted in 1884 as a peace oak.
    The name was taken from an old map from 1600, in which a cross was already registered at this point.
    A total of 8 trails lead away from the Kreuzeiche to other very interesting hiking or biker destinations.

    Node of many bike trips, from here all sorts of routes and excursions are possible, this is the border between Rlp and Nrw.

    The "Kreuzeiche" marks an old intersection for over a hundred years and is also the border between NRW and Rhineland-Palatinate.

    From there to the Otto or Pfannenberg tower is very nice :)

    The cross mark unfortunately does not exist in the previous dimension.
    She fell victim to the storm "Mortimer" on the night of 30.09.2019 and was uprooted.
    The oak has now been severely pruned and raised again.
    For an old historic monument, as well as a popular crossing point for hikers and cyclists remains the hope and desire that the tree will recover and grow again.

    Unfortunately, the Kreuzeiche fell in a storm in the fall of 2019 🙁
    The tree was trimmed and set up again. Whether he is going back to show the future.

    Too bad the cross sign fell over during the storm, hopefully it will come back on
