This is a fun spot to visit and easy to miss. Nothing about spitting for luck - or such. It is to commemorate where the last mass murderer in Bremen (a women) who got away with murder for decades finally met her maker. You'll see...More

Fortunately this otherwise unmarked “landmark” was easy to find. If it were a chore to get to I would have been bothered. Fortunate for the weeds that grow around it, it is popular as it appears to always be wet. Is this even real? It...More

Four grey cobbles in a square of cobbles. It took us a while to locate. We were having a "Where's Wally" moment No sign, no narrative about what it is. Really not even worth the effort of walking to it
