1 Hirsau, the village Hirsau, population 2000+. The Nagold rushes through the gap between the two mountains. Will reach the Enz and Neckar eventually. Not sure about the rapid water situation in the past but a 17th century fir tree growing in this location had a far chance to see the world. All expenses paid by the Dutch East Indian Company.
2 Hirsau, the village Pictures shows the four important postcard motives of Hirsau. The gabled ruins of the palatial ducal hunting lodge, the square Eulenturm, the Mary Chapel and the Aldi Süd discount market.
3 Hirsau, the village hatchback hour. There are two handicapped parking stalls right in front of the shopping cart's rack (not taken).

10 Hirsau, the highway sculptures, Melac Hey chump, did you drop something, like say your matchbook. - You can hardly expect a favorable Melac monument in Hirsau (or anywhere else for that matter). - By memory: Afghanistan expert Myrdale claims in one of this travelogues that things like that did only happen in India. Plassey and beyond. Just shows you how you can get your geography all wrong. The Black Forest much closer to the Pamir than you previously thought. - Bête noire Melac: This whole anti-Colonialism debate is over my head. Truth of the matter, I simply cannot find a good night's sleep if I have not burnt down an abbey or two.

14 Schweinbachtal Harts are no moose but fresh meadow grass is always in demand. The name 'Hirsau' will mean 'hart's (mead)ow', 'Hartsey'. The story that it means 'millet' (short for 'millet eater'), after a local 'Ceres' word, is just an 12th century rumor started by a Cluny hostile fraction of Staufic monks.
15 Schweinbachtal most likely Foxtail grass (Alocopecurus pratensis)
