The Holy Lawn-Cross
From old guesthouse Martinihof to a modern Hotel DAS EISENBERG
The old pilgrim guesthouse, Martinihof (Saint Martin guesthouse) in Eisenberg was only 450m away from the place of apparition. Upon the explicit wish of the Blessed Mother of God the pilgrim guesthouse was built during the years 1972 to 1973 by the Lawn Cross Pilgrim Association (RKPV). Truly enough, Heaven provided for the financing of this large building. The inauguration took place at Easter in the year of 1973.In 2007, the new Hotel DAS EISENBERG was opened on the site of the ancient pilgrimage home. The **** Hotel provides plenty of space for individual pilgrims and groups. Open daily, the panoramic restaurant in DAS EISENBERG was stylish with wood and tastefully decorated.
