    Impressive memorial cross to the former German east territories. It is especially popular with children for a climbing adventure. Here is also the stamp office 122 of the Harzer hiking nobility.

    Here stands a large cross surrounded by stones with the names of former German territories such as East Prussia

    The Harz Cross of the German East was northeast and slightly below the summit of about 2 km southeast of Bad Harzburg (Goslar, Lower Saxony) located Uhlenköpfe (555.4 m above sea level) on the Uhlenklippe on June 24, 1950 in the presence of Ernst Reuter inaugurated. The 20.5-meter-high wooden cross crashed, now ailing, on 4 March 1998 in a hurricane. On 30 September 2000, a new, 17.7 m high and 6.3 m wide steel cross, which is partially covered with wood, inaugurated. The construction costs amounted to 180,000 DM. The cross is included as No. 122 in the system of the postmarks of the Harzer hiking aristocracy; the stamp box hangs on a refuge near the cross. 🤗

    The cross of the German east is a waypoint with history: this meal is to commemorate the Germans who had to leave their homes during and after the Second World War. It is one of many "East Crosses" in Germany, which were set up by associations of displaced persons.

    An important place to commemorate the millions of innocent Germans who lost their homes in the eastern part of the country through displacement. But despite the sad occasion of this place, you should not forget the HWN stamp 122.

    Here you can also find the stamp office 122 of the HWN. The First Cross was erected in 1950. Unfortunately it was destroyed by a storm in 1998. Today's Cross was built in 2000, weighs 6 tons and is about 18 meters high. It is also worth the little way to go around the cross. Here are the stones of the old lands.

    Before the bark beetle attacked the spruce trees, it looked really idyllic there

    The Cross of the German East offers a refuge, stamp and a beautiful photo subject - if the weather is right.
