Take the path on the right in front of the Mariathal basilica and pilgrimage church to the cemetery and cross through the cemetery to the left. After a few steps you reach a gate bringing you tot the start of the Way of the Cross. The stations were created by the Kramsach artist Birgit Riedel. The path leads through the forest and then alongside the wall of the former Mariathal monastery. Behind the wall is the playground of the Kramsach Landessonderschule.

Actual walking time: approx. 15 minutes. Allow yourself some time to pause and contemplate.

The Way of the Cross ends at Kalvarienberg. The suffering of Christ with the crucifixion is depicted there. Spend some time in the square before descending to the right along the wall to the road. Continue to the right towards the Sculpture Park or return to the starting point at the Mariathal basilica.
