    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 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

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

    Unfortunately, where there are many people, there is often a lot of garbage. I do not know why you can not take your rubbish home with you.
