A couple of years ago, a few friends and myself went on a trip from the UK to Bremen. A great time was had by all, even though none of us speak much German, beyond a few words learned many years before in school.
Walking around Bremen, we encountered this street sign - I'm sure it was near the Werder Bremen football stadium.
We've talked about this several times since - in our ignorant English-only minds, it appears to say
No use of baseball bats
- only between the hours of 8pm and 8am
... and therefore it's fine to use them at any other time!
Can someone put us out of our misery and tell us what the sign really means? I'll be disappointed to learn that random violence isn't permitted in Bremen during daylight hours :)
