The train stations are decorated with historical, authenic photographs of the area, presented in mural-like fashion on the walls. This interesting one caught our eye.

This display of featured wines was at the entrance to the breakfast restaurant in our hotel.

This "Stone Cellar" castle had a prime place in the restaurant. It seems to be constructed of cakes, the steeples were ice cream cones.
