Second stage of the Horseshoe Tour from the Rittner Horn Haus to the Latzfons Cross

The Latzfons cross, with its small church of Heiligkreuz on Ritzlar, is one of the highest pilgrimage sites in Europe. Every summer, the villagers of Latzfons carry up the "Black Hergod", a Gothic wooden cross which, according to legend, was found in the Totenkirchl around 1700, in a procession. Next to the church we find a shelter – the destination of this stage.
