The labyrinth hill in Herrmannsdorf was built by Peter F. Strauss together with Mary Bauermeister und Marco Pogacnik in the year 1994.
Inscription on the sign at the bottom of the hill:
"This mountain is modelled after the Cretan labyrinth.
In Greek mythology, Theseus defeated with the help of Anades Minotaur, the embodiment of evil.
In the Christian Middle Ages the labyrinth shows the pilgrims the arduous journey into the eternal kingdom of heaven.
The Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu says: "When you want to get quickly to your destination, take the long way round."
Thus, across the ages, the labyrinth is a metaphor for the long walk to yourself. Because life is the mother of a long way round."
