"In a board meeting of the hunting association Mörsdorf in 1995, with the participation of board members Bernhard Seibel, Peter Dyer and Werner plates, the excitation to create the revenue hunting rents a crossroads came. So was looking for a suitable location. The road to Forster hilltops was the appropriate place for it. That same year, the tombs were cleared after the sun after 30 years (the left side from the entrance) in the cemetery.

The grave stones should be brought to Lie to rubble dump. Since most grave stones from the well-crafted and precious stone diabase were, we asked the sculptor Rudolf Müller from Lutzerath (born in Lahr) for advice. He proposed all 36 grave stones from the material to bring diabase to Lutzerath. Rudolf Müller thereof sculpted the 14 beautiful stations of the cross. (The Stations of the Cross were the last work of the sculptor Rudolf Müller, after he fell ill and died.)

The writing tablets for 14 stations were made by the stonemasonry firm Walter König in Kastellaun. The foundations and the base for the stations were made in own contribution mainly by Peter Dyer. The total cost of the stations of the cross were approximately 19,000 DM. Through the use of the old grave stones diabase 30,000 DM could be saved. In 1998, the Cross was solemnly consecrated by Mr Pater Behrla.

The Mörsdorfer Stations of the Cross are on the way to Forster-tops, on the trail (N 8) - a circular route of about 1.8 km."
