    The boundary stone is a typical historical boundary marking. Today the stone still marks the border of both federal states "Lower Saxony & Saxony-Anhalt".
    The stone is located between Oderbrück and Brocken.
    In winter, the stone is mostly hidden under a blanket of snow.

    50 meters further you will reach the "Schutzhütte Dreieckiger Pfahl" with stamp box, also a hiking highlight!

    The "Triangular Pile" is a very old historic landmark in the Upper Harz between Torfhaus and Braunlage. He was first recorded in 1682 in a forestry map and in the meantime renewed several times. There were versions of this border marker in wood and stone.
    The present-day stone with its triangular plan consists of rock granite and was erected before 1866. On two sides the letters "KH" for "Kingdom of Hanover" and on the third page "HB" for "Duchy of Brunswick" are engraved. Also in our days the triangular pile is a landmark between the states of Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.

    The Triangular Post is an important landmark and stopover for many hikers. It is also a crossroads of several trails in the west of the Brocken forest area with its numerous raised bogs. Near the triangular post there is a refuge, which is often used as a resting place.

    In the immediate vicinity of the landmark are several large peat bogs. North lies the Brockenfeld, west of the groundbreak, southwest of the Oderbruch and south of the Red Rift. These are the source area of such major resin rivers as Oder and Ecker as well as Warmer and Cold Bode. Source: harzlife.de/special/dreieckiger-pfahl.html

    The stamp box is not on the triangular post, but is located a few meters further in a refuge

    The triangular pole is an old landmark. Former part of the inner German border, today it is a border mark between Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.
    The stone is somewhat hidden under trees and near the seating benches

    The triangular pole is an old border point. Former part of the border between the Federal Republic and the GDR, today on the border between Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.

    One of the oldest and most striking landmarks in the Harz. Until reunification, a visitor hotspot on West German side.

    Probably the best-known refuge when climbing the Brocken. The triangular pole marks the former border of the GDR and today marks the border between Saxony-Anhalt and Lower Saxony.

    The triangular pile is a historic, approximately 1.35 m high granite boundary stone southwest of the Brocken in the Harz National Park. At that time the border to the former GDR ran here, today the stone marks the border between Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt
