Cycling demo in Marburg

Waiting for the train on the Harz Narrow-gauge Railway

Not the largest lorry to be driven into the city centre but I can't help thinking that vehicles of this size and larger (and some that are a bit smaller too) shouldn't be allowed in. This one stopped here for sometime.
