Billboard messages: Another Great Find In Germany

Germany has a wonderful history in art, architecture, literature, music etc

The professional tour guides I worked with in all the cities Off the Beaten Track  that the tourist board arranged for me were amazing.  But my mission disappointed all of them.

My focus was to spend the limited time in each city discovering something new, something not in the tour books.  

At the same time I was experiencing the city as a mature solo traveler: looking for restaurants, tours and popular city activities where a mature solo traveler would feel welcome.    If you have ever traveled independently you know what I am searching for.

My guide in Wiesbaden, Patrick, had a very engaging method to share the vast history of his town.    Although he thought my topic was less important he indulged me at ever stop when I asked "can a solo traveler come to concerts here or eat at this cafe and feel comfortable?"

My guide for the day showed me Wiesbaden from a local prospective

But I may have tested his sense of humor when I stopped and asked about a 'billboard' filled with a hand written message.  Of course he could explain this as well.   
And he agreed to tell me the story in a video.

My tour of Wiesbaden was thanks to Wiesbaden Marketing and the opinions and comments are my own.
