Tips

  • Marcel Schaller

    On the rock there is an iron summit cross erected in 1843, which reminds of the founding of the St. Afra State School with Latin inscriptions.

    At the time of my visit (11/2020) the cross on the base was stolen again. The stone is related to the holy martyr Afra von Augsburg († 304), in Meißen there is the state high school of the same name Sankt Afra.

    The cross was renewed and is now back on the rock above the Triebisch valley.

  • Teufelchen New

    For the 300th anniversary of the Princely School in 1843, former Afrans donated an artistic iron cross on the rock. Since 1811, a solemn prayer has been held here every year on July 3, Foundation Day. The tradition lives on in the “Hike to the Rocks of the Gods” at the end of each school year. From the vantage point with the summit cross there is a beautiful view towards the Polenzer Turm, Dobritzer Berg and over the Triebischtal. Since the end of 2020, the vantage point has had its cross back, which, like the corresponding base, had repeatedly been the victim of vandalism.

    Since the end of 2020, the Afran cross on the rock of the gods is there again. Let's hope that this time it will be spared vandalism for a little longer.

    “Each of these crosses can tell its own story and what motivated people to erect“ their ”cross at this point. (...) These crossroads were erected as visible signs and attract the eyes 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 hope 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: “Crossroads. Small sacred monuments as a sign of popular piety ")
