Learn German with Photos: Hier ist es schön
I found this bench in nature and the carving “Hier ist es schön” caught my attention. I definitely agreed with the inscription. Let’s see what it means…
It is beautiful here
It’s nice here / It’s lovely here
I tried to find out what the washed-out reply means. Some letters are barely still visible but checking the remaining letters, it can only mean “Das stimmt nicht!”. So, if I am right, what does that mean?
|stimmt||right / true|
|stimmt nicht||not true / not right|
That’s not true!
So, as you can see, someone disagreed with the carving. However, I agreed because I found the bench in nature and it was a very beautiful place. I guess, whoever disagreed, did so for the fun of it. It was probably a group of teenagers.

But maybe it was interesting nonetheless, especially for those who like the German language. I could imagine doing similar posts in the future if I find more photos with German sentences or words.
