Germany/Switzerland: Bodensee (Lake Constance) - paulsmit
'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 the inn Gasthof zur Sonne with a mural by Christian Schmidt. It depicts a famous scene from antiquity: philosopher Diogenes (living in a barrel) asking Alexander the Great to step aside because he casts shade on him.  Photo Paul Smit.
