    The wonder
    In 1668, Mueller Benedikt Martin and Fuhrmann Johann Rim led a millstone from a quarry north of Rheinfelden to Kienberg. Fourteen horses moved the wagon from Wegenstetten to the height of the Buschberg. Up on the plain, it happened: Benedict Martin slipped and fell so unhappily that both legs got under the wheels of the moving car. "Jesus and Mary help him!" Cried Carter Rim. Meanwhile [the miller] went over the wheels with the load on both shins. Who would not have guessed that such a heavy burden of 23 quintals should not have left that pious man out of his legs? No doubt, of course, such a thing should have happened where not a high-quality lucky stone intervened. O miraculous power of this Marian stone! "Martin stood up with a great terror, but unhurt. Out of gratitude, he made a cross at the scene and made a pilgrimage to the monastery Mariastein, whose Miracles Book tells us the story above.
    Bloom and decline of the pilgrimage
    The cross on Buschberg became a well-known place of pilgrimage. When three drunken woodworkers cut the cross in 1843, this outrage caused a great sensation. Immediately the community of Wittnau had a new cross built, which was renewed in 1906. In the 19th century, the pilgrimage experienced an upswing. In 1868, donations from the Fricktal villages in front of the cross were used to build a chapel open on three sides. Surrounding parishes organized processions every year to the "miraculous Cross", and even from Alsace and Baden reached the plateau of the bush mountain pilgrims. The First World War led to the decline of the pilgrimage. Today, especially single pilgrims and hikers are looking for the chapel.
    In 2000, the roof of the cross was renewed and equipped with a belfry. He wears a 1663 cast, 67 kg Marian bell, which once hung in the Wittnau church tower.Strong power place
    In recent years, the Buschberg gained a certain reputation as a place of power. In 1994, a group of ten people in the forest immediately behind the chapel opened an "earth energy center" with strange sounds from the ground being recorded on tape. The chapel itself is also considered a place of strength with a strength of 22,000 to 34,000 Bovis units. This force is determined by pendulum and rod, but is not tangible with the scientific measuring methods of physics. (Ih)

    The place is considered a so-called power place but also for those who give little it is worth a visit (rest, places to stay and nature)
