Where to Go in Germany

We like bringing you scenes not only of the forests and fields of the hiking trails we’ve walked, but also fun discoveries we’ve made in the towns we visited.

Meet the little Piggies of the Schweinsbrücke

Our recent hiking trip brought us to Schwerin in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. (Read about that hike here.) As is usual, we did a day trip to a nearby town, Wismar, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

And these little piggies gave us some moments of amusement seeing them watch over each of the four corners of a canal bridge.

These little piggies of the Schweinsbrücke (Pig Bridge) are the works of a local artist, Christian Wetzel.
