    People climbed the hill as early as the 15th century to worship a crucifix standing there. The view that opens up from the Kreuzberg in Bonn is not to be despised either. The church itself, including the three-part staircase, is the most important baroque sacred building in Bonn and the surrounding area. The complex with its 28 steps is a replica of the "Scala Santa" in Rome, was created by the Baroque master builder Balthasar Neumann and is divided into three steps. The middle, the actual Scala Sancta, is reserved for those praying, who are only allowed to approach the cross on their knees and "without weapons".

    Splendid baroque chapel with holy staircase after the model in the Lateran palace in Rome. Built by Elector Clemens August. Nestled in beautiful countryside with good views over Bonn.

    In the evening, it can be quite a bit up there. Two benches on the field, directly in the direction of Cologne.

    The oldest surviving testimony is a wayside shrine on the way from Bonn-Ippendorf to Kreuzberg from 1616.
