    The Ostlandkreuz of Geislingen (Steige) stands on the Sentinel at 665 meters and was built in 1950. The expellee monument is visible from afar and is often mistaken for a summit cross.

    The Schildwacht located 665 m above sea level is an outstanding corner point of the Albtrauf near Geislingen / Steige. From the Sentinel you have a beautiful view of the Geislingen / Steige valley spider from east to north to north-northeast.
    On the Schildwacht am Albtrauf near Geislingen / Steige is the 24 meter high Ostlandkreuz, visible from afar. It was built in 1950 by the South Moravian community to commemorate the dead and displaced from World War II.

    The Ostland Cross was created as a memorial to the displaced South Moravians. Inside, a construction crane was used as the basis. From here you have a great view over Geislingen and over to the Ödenturm and Helfenstein. With these two landmarks you can actually see all 3 Geislingen landmarks.
    The plateau between the parking lot and the Kreuz (the Sentinel) is a typical heathland in the Swabian Jura. Here you can play, grill, etc.
