The Deutschmark lives on!

We may have stopped paying with the Deutsche Mark 8 years ago, but every now and then I see a shop that still accepts the old currency.

My latest sighting was in the pedestrian precinct in Oberursel:

Bei uns können Sie auch mit DM bezahlen

And apparently this shop is not the only one in the town!

Narrow and low clearance sings

Seen at one of the town gates in Horb a.N.

The sign is next to one of the town gates and shows that traffic coming out of the town has priority, and that the clearance through the gate is only 3.30m

Signs next to the Ihlinger Tor, Horb a.N.

A confusing sign for Cyclists

Here’s a confusing sign of you’re a cyclist:

Confusing sign for Cyclists

1. This is part of a marked out cycle route – recognisable by the green bicycle with the arrow.

2. But it’s for pedestrians only – see the white mother and child on a blue background.

3. So cyclists should dismount – “Radfahrer absteigen”

4. Oh, and it’s private property anyway – “Privatgrundstück”, but you can still push your bicycle across it at your own risk – “Betreten auf eigene Gefahr!”.
