Krumme Schneider
Krumme Schneider submitted by Martin_L : 'Der krumme Schneider' (~ the hunched tailor) standing stone in September 2018. Interesting shape, nice associated legends which are available on an informative, but sadly rather monumental site sign almost reminding of a bus stop. Locals seemingly do care a lot for the site, but most of these measures rather spoil the ambience. (Vote or comment on this photo)
