the Jakobskreuz

Strength seekers, pilgrim friends, thinkers, free spirits and bon vivants - they all meet in the imposing Jakobskreuz at the summit of the Buchensteinwand. The largest accessible cross in the world.  On a total of five viewing platforms you can turn around your own axis and enjoy the 360°panoramic view.

The word vista could not be defined better than here. No wonder, that the Jakobskreuz is so popular for seminars and meetings. The famous vista is also in demand for the search for new ideas and maximum creative performance.
