Regensburg Streets: Schwarze-Bären Straße

There’s a street in town that has a bear print in the paving stones.

…and at the next intersection, there’s the same thing in bronze, but facing the opposite direction.

I was wondering what the bear prints are for, until I noticed the street sign.  Schwarze-Bären Straße, or Black Bear Street.  Neat!

Are there any particularly fun street names in your town?

  1. There’s a whole area of a neighboring city with names from LOTR– totally random! 🙂 I love the bear prints, though… I have a soft spot for well-executed themes.
