With the erection of the twelve-meter-high cross, the third Kaiserberg has also received a landmark that can be seen from afar.
The cross was created by a private initiative.
It was Waldstetter and Wißgoldinger craftsmen who made and erected this cross. It consists of a weatherproof laminated beam made of larch wood. Although larch wood is naturally very resistant to moisture, the wood on the upper surfaces was given a copper deposit for weather protection. It has not been painted, so over time it will form a natural patina. The cross is supported by two galvanized steel girders resting in a solid concrete foundation.

On 18 Septermber 2011, the new Stuifenkreuz was built and inaugurated. Nevertheless, there are two more "summit crosses" on the way to the highest point of the Stuifen (757m). The summit cross built in 1967 and a little further on the highest point of the summit stone with a cross attached to a dead tree.
At the beautiful Ausscihtsplatz there is a barbecue, a small hut and a very nice "compass" copper plate with reliefs of the surrounding mountains.

The Stuifen at the community Waldstetten
The Stuifen is with 757 m the highest of the three Kaiser mountains and belongs to the municipality Waldstetten, in Ostalbkreis. Unlike the other two mountains, it was never built. Until the mid-19th century, it was a heathland and was then reforested.
The top of Stuifen can only be reached on foot. A possible starting point of the place Wißgoldingen at its feet. On the mountain there is a shelter and on the top a fireplace. All walks to the mountain and in the area are completely signposted. From Wißgoldingen about 200 meters in altitude must be overcome.

Of the three imperial mountains, the Stuifen is my favorite. There are many ascent variants and also possibilities for Wanderrunden.Noch on beautiful nature trails. The view of the Rechberg and Hohenstaufen is great. And it is usually quieter than on the other two imperial mountains.
