Thank you.

Indeed. I have learned that as well at a WikiData Workshop (held by Beat).

Unfortunately I'm not familiar enough with WikiData to (a) create such a
property "location description" in a meaningful way. And (b), assuming
there would be such property in WikiData, I have no idea how to
integrate it's content in e.g. uMap.

In the actual situation it's quite easy to integrate the content of
*location:description:de=* in uMap[1] in order it gets rendered properly
(at the moment 25 fountains gets rendered[2], some 200 still to do... )

...just my 2 cents

cheeers, h.
