Long Description:
EN: This orientation table is located on a hiking trail in the north of Ziefen.

It contains a schematic drawing of the visible surroundings. Buildings are white. The distance of the hills is indicated by different shades of red to yellow. The inscription includes buildings, farms, hills and a few neighboring villages, but they are not visible from here.

There is no indication by whom the table was erected; presumably it was the municipality of Ziefen. The only text other than the location is: "...lit frei und schön das Ländli, wo mir deheime sy..." (… lies free and beautiful, the land we call home…).
