    The master bricklayer Constant Hoy from Arnstadt carried out the design and construction. The construction costs were around 1170 marks with an average daily wage of an urban manual worker of 1.75 marks at that time. Construction was in progress at the end of 1895 and in July 1896 the "cross" was completed in the form that is still known today. It should remind of a "castle with watchtower" on the Alteburg.

    This small mini castle can be climbed and offers a beautiful view of the Geratal.

    very tight & could be smooth (due to hoarfrost)

    This view is not the most beautiful of the area, but you can see the cross from here very well.

    A beautiful rest area with a view towards Siegelbach. A tour over the Kreuzchen, the Schneckchen and the Altenburg is always worthwhile!

    from here you have a great view in good weather ... we have e.g. seen the snow head.
    You also have a good view of the Geratal.

    Who knows Kämpf's turret?
    Some say that it is the oldest lookout tower in the
    19th century was near Arnstadt. Unfortunately, it was destroyed by lightning around 1890.
    The others report that the merchant Kämpf (d.
    1810) a stable with a scalable, crenellated crown
    erected the name "Kämpfs
    Turret ".

    After a steep climb over a forest path, you will be rewarded with a great view from the Kreuzchen lookout tower into the Thuringian Forest. The lookout tower is great for a little rest. Even in bad weather, it offers protection and rest with a bench and a stone table inside

    Somewhat tight, especially with a child's back on the back 😉
