Funny Foto Freitag

As seen on a sign at Britzer Garten:

What the heck is this sign trying to tell you? Witch-Crossing 300 meters to the left??? Lounging over bowling balls 200 meters to the right?? This is my kind of park!

What's with the stairs? That's what I don't get...

I think it means ex-wives have to go this way or maybe ex-wives are to the left. If your happily married it has no meaning.

I think it means witch garden ("Hexengarten") 300 meters to the left and lawn lounging ("Liegewiese") with playground 200 meters to the right.

@ Micheal - Good to know. However, what is a witch garden? Given the fact that I don't believe in witches and most Germans probably don't either, what is the other meaning to this?

@Yelli
It`s a herb and flower garden. :-)
That's what it's all about. ;-) You can find there herbs and flowers witches (and ordinary people, too) used in the Middle Ages for their daily work and life (healing, witchcraft, superstition). Here is a URL to a (german) description of the "witch garden" at Britzer Garden with a list of all plants you can find there:
