A few metres past the Heiliggrab-Kapelle the rest of the way of the cross. Of the seven original stations five remained. In the churchyard are the groups: Christ carrying the cross (Jesus takes the cross on his shoulders), mockery, flogging and Christ before Caiaphas (Joseph, son of Caiaphas), (Note: Christ's face is intact, the henchmen are fully damaged). On the path towards the Geiersberg “Christ with disciples on the Mount of olives”: a kneeling Christ looks at the Angel standing on the rock (whose hands fail), a bit further the “sleeping disciples”. At the Calvary (the stairs are at the left on the Geiersberg) are the grieving Mary and favourite disciple John. At the end of a steep staircase the cross dating from 1830, which reminds of the 18th century seventh station which lead from the Geiersberg to the Grabkirche. The statues which once stood at the Via Dolorosa are presently near the Church wall at the beginning of the Church stairs under an “umbrella”, the statues were donated in 1697 by Kaspar Aman (a benefactor born in Deggendorf and residing in Vienna). Early 19th century they were removed and no longer replaced at their original spot, 1998 renovated.
