Signs for the senses

Lots of effort have gone into signage over here in Europe.  This pleases me.  Not only does it help me to figure out what they actually do in a foreign language, but it also speaks to their craft and dedication as a culture.  My mind wanders immediately to Salzburg's Getreidegase, which is, perhaps, the best example of this.  Every storefront on that historic street is required to have a hanging sign that signifies what they offer.  It makes for a wonderful scene!

I've compiled a few of my favorite signs in my first week here in Germany.  I hope you enjoy them as I do!

I look forward to compiling more!
