June 25, 2008: A heavy thunderstrom destroyed the summit cross of "Großer Priel"! It was eight meters high and about 2.200 kilograms of weight. Originally erected in 1870, local people helped to carry the segments of the cross up to the peak at 2.515 meters.
On August 17, 2009 the new cross was airlifted by helicopter. The old summit cross found its place of honor down in the valley.
