I thought it might be Plats-Deutsch for something like - little steps means no falls.

I agree....I think it's Dutch.

Well, you have that upper board obscure the letters.

It's
Lischen Fall Net Runter (it's dialect, Hessian or a Southern German dialect)

Meaning
Lischen (Little Liz), don't fall off/down. Runter means falling down from something higher up.
