Mr. Schoeffel is known as the "saviour" of the Vienna forest. About 150 years ago is was the plan to cut down the wide woods to the west of Vienna and sell it to private property, but Mr. Schoeffel finally could persuade the authorities not to cut the forest, but keep it alive and free accessible for the public. Soon people started to like going there for recreational purposes, and after Mr. Schoeffel's death they decided to put up this memorial stone to remember the "Saviour of the Vienna Forest".
