Determining this on site is not that easy. Because the parcels into which our land is divided by the real estate cadastre are marked by boundary stones, which are very often not (no longer) really visible. Why? Mainly for two reasons:

  • In urban residential areas, in contrast to agricultural and forestry areas, boundary stones are usually not set high, but flush with the ground
  • Especially when cross-border points have been defined years ago or decades, nature has often overgrown the stone marks overgrown

How to find "your " landmark

To locate a landmark, you can contact the survey and cadastral office responsible for you. Here you can usually get exact coordinates for your landmark. For this you only have to know your surface number - thanks to the meanwhile often citizen-friendly provision of exact real estate cards (Z.B. Also in 3D view) Through some of the local cadastral offices this can usually be found in a few clicks.

However, official border information is usually only issued if the coordinates are already recorded in the real estate cadastre according to highly precise and reliable criteria, especially for border points that are not marked - i.e. not marked with a real boundary stone.

In the case of marked border points, coordinate information that is not as highly accurate can be issued in individual cases. If you cannot find out clearly on the online portal of your responsible land surveying office whether the property line in question contains marked or unmarked boundary points, you should seek personal advice from the responsible regional directorate. Often it is also possible to acquire geodata online - without going to the office.

For the publication of the official landmark coordinates, a fee is usually due for the paying lines of the respective surveying and cadastral administration.

With the coordinates - mostly they are now published in UTM format - you can locate the landmark using GPS tools on site.
