Mountain Biking Highlight
The Kreuzbuche is named after four old beech trees that once stood around the square at the crossroads. The oldest of the beeches was about 250 years old when felled in 1913 because of white rot. In 1939, a 200-year-old beech tree was uprooted by a storm. In 1951 another of the beeches was felled and today's monument was erected. The last cruciferous beech was about 150 years old and about 35 meters high in 1972 when it was felled because of white rot. The tree is marked as a natural monument on older maps. In 2018 a young copper beech grew at its former location.
