It is a very unique and spiritual place. I have found it by accident and it was really worth to visit. Nice and quiet with a special atmosphere. The crosses there are astonishing. Free parking and free toilet facilities (which is really clean)

Very spiritual place, lots of crosses, people bring their crosses as their life, their fate I would say. A place to calm down, evaluate, stop for a while and get some oxygen for further life.
