    To be found in the hiking area near Masserberg, around the donkey mountain. For all historically interested. On a route section of about two km on the Rennsteig, 8 historic landmarks show up at the original location. They testify to the border lines of various Thuringian dominions.

    The Rennsteig leads past several hundred (about 1000) landmarks and 13 three-man-stones, which show a variety of former country borders. The oldest dates from 1513, most of the remaining stones from the 18th century. On the stones is the year of stone setting and a consecutive number. The territories of three countries collided at the three-man stones.
