Only one of this in Germany
This stone is the only one of this kind in Germany. It means the border between three free republics of Germany: Thuringia, Bavaria, Saxonia.
Nice walk from Gefell part Gebersreuth to the little water and stone which is the border between the old Fürstentum Reuss, Königreich Bayern und Königreich Sachsen since many centuries. Stone exists since April 1840.
The lines on picture: the longest one is the border to Bavaria (above), down is Thuringia and the little left (corner) Saxonia´s border line.
