    At a crossroads on a ridge above Krombach, a stone cross surrounded by two large trees that was erected in 1730 on the initiative of a pastor. The Hauensteiner Hof and a fallow deer enclosure are nearby.

    Hall crosses used to be a popular place to erect at crossroads that people passed on their way to the church. This is also the case with the Hauenstein field cross. It is located on the old church path from Oberschur and the surrounding farmsteads to the parish church in Krombach.

    A sandstone cross on the side of the path not far from the game reserve. 😀

    “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. "

    Not far from there is a game reserve. You can get food at the automatic feeder and use it to attract the roe deer. They're pretty hungry. :-)
