15Fangs, But No Thanks
The German stereotype may be that of earnest, hardworking people, but many people are unaware of their rich heritage of fairy tales and historical myths. Famous for bringing us Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Snow White, the Brothers Grimm brought together a collection of stories that had been passed down for centuries
and published them for the first time in the early 1800's.
Initially, for adults, the tales were much, much, darker than the sanitized Disney versions our children enjoy today, which might explain why this playground near Berlin doesn't get a second glance, despite the fact it is topped by a vampire.
It would appear that the Germans are happy to share the slightly darker side with their children in a way from which we, in North America, are likely to shy away.
