    stand on

    Hamelin is a small town in Germany. The center of the town is beautiful and has many very old buildings. Hamelin stands on the banks of a large river, with hills on both sides of it.

    What does "stand on" mean in the previous context?

    Re: stand on

    When I visited, I found it funny to follow the "rat silhouettes" on the ground, leading you through the village center.
