Don't know how to insert a photograph which is not URL, but recently on a hike down from Bellalp to Naters [VS] we passed a signpost which read......

SCHITT !!

Re: Weird sign posts in Switzerland

At the Jahrmarkt on Wednesday in Baden was a stall selling beer and Gluehwein (very tasty I have to say). The company running it, a 'mobile brewery' is called... Fahrtwind .
