Hi Christian,

Add the following TS setup to your root template:

tt_content.menu.20 {
   2 {
     special = directory
     special.value.field = pages

Then in your 'Sitemap/Menu' content element select the type 'Sitemap' 
and use the 'Starting point' field as Christopher suggested.

Hope this helps,
