We are still in Baden-Baden, the town so nice they had to name it twice.  The town was the celebrity capital of Europe in the 1800’s.  This is the Trinkhalle Spa.  It was founded on the site of Roman baths.

Water from this fountain is hot – not so hot as to blister you, but you can’t leave your hand under it for very long.  As the sign indicates, it is not drinkable.

A swiftly moving stream goes through the town.

I took a photo of this chicken before I saw the sign forbidding photography.  After a nasty look from one of the employees, I put the camera away.
