Either way, we have to move on. To the Fronhof, with the Hofgarten on the left. The dwarves in it immediately remind us of our trip last year, where we ended up in the Zwergerlgarten in Salzburg (see here and here). One garden is quite different from the other, but the sculptures in it date from roughly the same period, a period in which dwarfs were quite popular in literature and afterwards in sculpted form. Also nice in this baroque Hofgarten is the public library, a quite extensive bookcase where people can freely pick out books. In our own municipality an attempt is being made to get such an initiative off the ground, but nothing has come to fruition except an announcement. Here about three-quarters of the people sitting on the benches read. So it is a success story (or several).
