Not far from the city center, if you follow the Radetzkystrasse you will come to a local recreation area known as the Kreuzbergl. A popular attraction here is the Kreuzberglkirche (a church with stations of the cross), which was consecrated in 1742. The stations of the cross were erected after the church had been built.

The church itself is a Baroque building with a square nave, the eastern façade which faces the town has a pair of towers with Baroque onion-shaped domes and a plain pilaster structure. The high altar made of stucco marble with smooth and twisted columns was erected in 1740. The altarpiece, ‘Lamentation of Christ’ by J. F. Fromiller, and the Baroque figures of Saint Franz Xaver and Saint Johannes Nepomuk adorn the interior.
