On your hikes through the High Fens, you are sure to notice the multitude of crossroads. And each cross has its own story. Most of them don't end happily. Murdered, drowned, frozen to death, mysteriously killed ... Probably the best-known bad luck cross is "The Cross of the Fiancées". A couple who died here in a snow storm. Maybe the moor is a bit scary after all? As a result of its isolation, the High Fens harbored a multitude of dangers.
