'Fresco in Stein am Rhein.'

It is the market square that impresses you in Stein am Rhein: nearly every house and the town hall is covered with murals dating from around 1900, like here the Haus zum Pelikan. The pelican feeding its chicks with its own blood is a symbol for Jesus' self sacrifice on the cross. Photo Paul Smit.
