This is called a 'TOP', short for (in Dutch) 'Toeristisch OverstapPunt', something like 'Tourist Transfer Point'. A TOP is a kind of landmark where tourists 'arrive' and can start a marked cycle or hiking route, or any kind of activity. These signs can be found in various regions of the Netherlands. Here in the province of Groningen it's a cone filled with stones, other places have a steal key, or a large stalk for instance.

This particular one is located near the train station in Stadskanaal.

Linking to signs, signs.

10 opmerkingen:

  1. Magnificent way to collect all the loose stones to the pile.

  2. How neat. In the first picture the wire frame is not visible. I like it! Tom The Backroads Traveller

  3. It would certainly attract my attention. What a great idea.

  4. Doet me denken aan die opgestapelde stenen van de indianen aan de canadese westkust. Ook een soort markeringsteken. Goed idee.

  5. Ik heb zoiets nog nooit gezien, een goed idee.

  6. A very good idea. These "tops" are very unique!
