Spitzes Kreuz Kelberg

Kelberg

Pointed cross The top cross is a votive cross (vow cross). It was built in gratitude for salvation from great need. The legend tells that in 1639 the plague raged in the Kelberg area. Bodenbach in particular suffered terribly from this, half of the villagers had already been taken away. Pitzens Hannes, who drove the dead to Kelberg's funeral with his team, vowed that if this was the last dead man he had to drive, he wanted to build a cross in thanks. In fact, the disease subsided a few days later and, as promised, he made the point of the cross on the vow.
