My town- Pretzeltown!

In the last days it´s been a music festival here, called Pretzeltown. It´s a translation of the nickname my town has, "Kringelstan". In the last century´s beginning, there were women who sold their homebaked pretzels in the city and at the railway station. According to Wikipedia, their sales methods were so aggressive they were forbidden in the town streets. True or not, it´s a curiosity fact. Nowadays you can buy pretzels here, not salty, but sweet. But they are not something we usually have.

Welcome to Pretzeltown!
