Only a few meters later, the Kreuzberg monastery is reached. Because of the monestary, the mountain bears the name: Holy Mountain of the Franks. The monastery with its church and brewery has existed for several hundred years and is still a popular destination in the Rhön.
The next stop is the well-known crucifixion group not far from the summit. A panorama opens up here not only enjoyed by photographers. If you don't capture it in photos, then you certainly do so in your memories of this trip.
Finally, you return to the starting point, the Kreuzberg hiking car park, via an open meadow area with great views.
Safety informationThe tourist paths of the Rhön are mostly also used by other active people (hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, walkers, horse riders, cross-country skiers, etc.).
We ask all active nature sports enthusiasts to be considerate of each other. Of course, the same applies to nature - it is worth protecting. In the Rhön, nature sports should therefore only be practiced in daylight on designated paths and areas.
Getting thereThe starting point of the hike can be reached by car via the A7. Leave the autobahn at exit 95 Bad Brueckenau Wildflecken and take the B286 in the direction of Bad Brueckenau. Shortly afterwards you turn right onto the St2289 in the direction of Wildflecken. Now follow the local signs and drive via Oberwildflecken to the Kreuzberg.
