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.

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.
