"Really, do they need this signpost?" Augustusburg Local Custom Tip by Kathrin_E

Augustusburg Local Customs: 1 reviews and 2 photos


We spotted this signpost outside a house in market square. It points into two directions which are useful to know.
To the left: "Up the hill"
To the right: "Down the hill"

This makes me wonder if the locals really do not notice whether they are walking uphill or downhill, or if they consider tourists too dumb to notice. In fact this vital information is impossible to overlook even without the signs. The market square is, as the second photo shows, quite steep. It has an inclination of 14%. Nobody who walks there would have the slightest doubt where is "up" and where is "down"...

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
