    "On the tower-like top of the rock stands a big iron cross, and if need be, there is room for four human feet." (Heinrich Heine) About three kilometers from Ilsenburg rises high above the Ilsetal the legendary Ilsestein. On the summit of the rock, which lies 474 meters above sea level, stands the large cast-iron cross, of which Heine already enthused. The ascent to the cross is not without danger. Therefore please be careful. On top of the rock next to the cross, there is no railing or other safety devices.

    Next to the path to the Ilsekreuz, a small path goes parallel to it.
    Those who struggle through the thorny scrub can still discover the remains of the foundations of the old Ilsestein Castle.

    In a beautiful ago, old trailer, you can buy small food, drinks, as well as postcards and stamps. At the block hut you can throw it in immediately.
    The snack bar is open Friday-Sunday from 1.00-18.00.
    Mrs. Fischer is currently ill. Therefore, it is currently closed on Feitag.

    A place with a beautiful view of the village Ilsenburg and the mountains all around.
    And by the way Ilsestein, not Ilsenstein and unfortunately most photos have nothing to do with the Ilsestein.

    Although it is difficult to climb to the cross but worth the view. Unfortunately, the restaurant is only open on weekends.
