Zweite Etappe der Hufeisentour vom Rittner Horn Haus zum Latzfonser Kreuz

Das Latzfonser Kreuz ist mit seiner kleinen Kirche Heiligkreuz auf Ritzlar eine der höchstgelegenen Pilgerstätten Europas. Jeden Sommer tragen die Dorfbewohner von Latzfons den "Schwarzen Hergott", ein gotisches Holzkreuz, das der Sage nach um 1700 im Totenkirchl gefunden wurde, in einer Prozession herauf. Neben der Kirche finden wir ein Schutzhaus – das Ziel dieser Etappe.

“They take pictures of the mountain climbers at the top of the mountain. They don’t take pictures along the way cause who wants to remember the relentless climb, the pain and anguish of taking it to the next level – nobody takes pictures of that, nobody wants to remember. We just want to remember the view from the top, the breathtaking moment at the edge of the world. That’s what keeps us climbing and it’s worth the pain, that’s the crazy part. It’s worth anything.“ – Anonymous
