    The crucifixion group on the Kreuzberg is probably the most popular motif of the Rhön. A way of the cross with 13 picture chapels (1710) leads from the Kreuzberg monastery to the three stone Golgota crosses (1729). These represent the 12th station of the Way of the Cross, which is modeled on the Way of the Cross in Jerusalem. 🥾🥾

    The mighty wooden summit cross of the Kreuzberg has stood near the three crosses of the Way of the Cross for centuries. It has to be renewed from time to time because it is heavily exposed to the weather. For example, such a cross was erected in 1997 and had to be removed in 2012 for safety reasons. The design of this cross comes from the architect Uwe Kröckel from Bad Neustadt an der Saale. On April 12, 2014, a new cross made from a larch trunk was erected, which was consecrated on May 3, 2014.

    From the Kreuzberg there are good views: From its northern slope there is a view of the Black Mountains, the Dammersfeldkuppe (second highest mountain in the Rhön; with restricted area of the Wildflecken military training area), the upper Sinntal, the Wasserkuppe, the Langen Rhön, the Thuringian Forest and the Brendtal . When visibility is very good, the Taunus with the Großer Feldberg can be seen in the west. Then there is an impressive view of the southern foreland of the Hohe Rhön and all the way to Schweinfurt (Wiki) from the Blockmeer located east to south-east below the summit plateau.

    The summit cross on the Kreuzberg, near the transmission mast and the 3 Golgotha crosses, with a wonderful panoramic view far into the Franconian countryside, the Hessian Rhön, the Thuringian Forest and the Spessart.

    Great view. The Klostergaststätte is however quite overcrowded, as you can also go by car. It is worthwhile to walk a little further to the Neustädter Haus and rest there. Nice service and good food.

    “Each of these crosses can tell its own story and what motivated people to erect“ their ”cross at this point. (...) These crossroads have been erected as visible signs and attract the looks of many people. The cross is a symbol of life. It stands as a sign of our Christian hope and wants to direct our gaze to Jesus Christ, who overcame death (...). The cross is part of our life, just as it was part of the life of Jesus. So I wish that many people ... visit the crossroads, whether as places of silence and breathing before God, whether as places of congregation meeting, prayer and praise of God. "
    (Text source: Dean Rainald M. Ollig
    in: "Crosses of the way ... Small sacred monuments as a sign of popular piety")

    The Kreuzberg Monastery is a Franciscan monastery in the Klosterkreuzberg district of the town of Bischofsheim an der Rhön in Lower Franconia in the Diocese of Würzburg.
    It is located on the western slope of the Kreuzberg in the Rhön at 864 m.

There is a monastery restaurant with overnight accommodation for up to 250 people. A total of around 500,000 to 600,000 visitors are counted each year.
