    The Ommer Kreuz stands at the crossroads between the settlements Großblumberg, Hambüchen, Berghof and Sonnenschein, is made of sandstone and consists of a crucifix made of marble.
    Originally the cross was probably in Kausemannsbirken, which had to make way for the construction of the Neyetalsperre. The Ommer Kreuz is a registered architectural monument (list of monuments of the municipality of Wipperfürth, current No. 111; LVR-ADR, ObjNr. 12370).

    The "cross" is called the Ommer Cross!

    “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. "

    From here, when the weather is nice, you can see not only all three church towers in Wipperfürth, but also the village churches in Agathaberg and Kreuzberg.
