Afelskreuz

Afelskreuz

Katzwinkel

The Afelskreuz (indulgence cross) stands on an old Roman military road.
For centuries, pilgrims from the Bonn-Cologne area have been pilgrimaging along this road to the grave of the Apostle Matthias in Trier.
In the vernacular this path is therefore also called the pilgrim road. However, there is another name: until the 1930s, farmers and traders drove cattle and pigs past the Afelskreuz to the markets in Kelberg and Mehren. This fact gives the path its second name: Piglet Road.

[Rita Gehendges: Natural Monuments of the Daun County] Historical Landscape Pictures The Eifel in the Heath and Juniper Dress of the 19th Century Werner Schwind, Gerolstein The landscape of the Eifel has changed significantly in the last 100 to 150 years. Meadow improvements, wasteland afforestation, conversion of deciduous to coniferous forests, mining or mining of volcanic mountains and last but not least road and housing construction have given the Eifel a new face.
