Signpost at the fork where the Schierling-Paring road separates from the Schierling-Langquaid road, looking south to the woods beyond the Große Laaber. This was an important decision-point in the Peterson-Cumberlidge Eckmuhl maneuver: Should the Austrian reserves turn northwest for a frontal attack against Paring, or go farther west around Davout's south flank? We went for the flanking move.
Looking northwest from the road junction toward Paring, over the site of the Peterson-Cumberlidge cavalry battle.
Looking east from the hill just southeast of Paring. Schierling is visible in the distance at right. This is a formidable position for a battery dominating the approaches to Paring from the east, as Cumberlidge demonstrated.
Looking north-northwest toward Paring from the hill just southeast of the village.
Looking east from the Klosterberg hill northeast of Paring. This is another good site for a battery.
Looking southeast from the Klosterberg hill northeast of Paring. Schierling is visible in the distance at right.
Looking south from the Klosterberg hill, across the valley of the Große Laaber to the wooded heights between Allersdorf and Sankt Johann.
