To enter the town you must cross under this archway.  There were two main archways, located at either end of the main street in the town.

It was a bright and cheerful day in Waldshut.

 I enjoyed this large and elaborate fountain, complete with rams spitting water and horses with water coming out of their nostrils (seen in the background here).

Given how hot it was, it's not surprising that many of the children also enjoyed the fountain!

 The buildings were elaborately carved with floral designs and (somewhat creepy) faces.

 Continuing down the main street, most of the buildings were covered in brightly colored flags, although I'm not sure if there was a reason behind it!

It's only a brief detour off the main street to check out the construction.

My brief foray into the (one) side street complete, I turn to go back to the main street but my attention was caught by this intricate sign on the side of a building.

I join the Germans resting in the shade as I sketch for a few hours in the early afternoon heat.

Of course I have to pop down to the Rhine before I leave--I am tickled that the houses across the river are located in Switzerland, not Germany (the border runs along the Rhine by Waldshut Tiengen).
