Ockenheimer Kreuz (Cross of Ockenheim)

An old field cross and many different grape varieties

The site was first mentioned in 1471 with the name "an dem crutze". An old field cross gave this site its name. No surprise, as Jakobsberg monastery is not far away and still exists today. Not to be confused with the Ockenheimer Friedenskreuz, this one is not located in the "Ockenheimer Kreuz" vineyard. Different grape varieties grow on drift sand Rigosol.
