A semicircle representing the north hemisphere and the Greenwich meridian, perhaps?

Well done, the Greenwich meridian it is!

I'm not 1000% sure about the exact position though, despite having been here many a time. It isn't really visible on the map.

It only takes enlarging the photo and reading what is carved in the pillar.

dsw_558 on November 27, 2008

Oh come on, that's cheating ;-)

Draken on November 27, 2008

Well, you never said don't read the inscription, did you? ;-)

dsw_558 on November 27, 2008

Fair enough:-)

DSW It's dead easy to get the right position go to google earth (Better Resolution) run the point until it says 00 00 00 00 you might be a little off North South but spot on of East West.

Respect and Honour Peter

Ah! Many thanks, both for the correction and for poiting that out, Peter!

Nach Norden? Direkt zwischen Ost und West, weg vom Süden...

Ge Ko on October 8, 2009

ha, ha,ha!

Dann frage ich mal konkreter!

In welche Richtung schaut das Mädchen.

Gebe Dir jetzt aber etwas mehr Mühe!

Gruß,

Ge Ko

Ich sehe das Fragezeichen.

Also, Du weiß nicht mehr, als ich!

dsw_558 on October 8, 2009

Doch doch. Sie schaut in Richtung Süden, also auf die Nordseite des Pfahls.
