Männerparkplatz - Men's parking space

With all these discussions about gender, sometimes reaching the heights of absurdity, a little town in the black forest used this topic in order do become really known all over the world.
Triberg already claims the highest waterfall in Germany.  In 2012 they created the first two parking spaces for men. Surely it had been planned as a joke, mocking about the prejudice that women can not park properly. There has been a huge response, though, not entirely positive but creating a lot of publicity for the small town of Triberg.
After the interest and the stream of curious tourists melted a bit down, Triberg added another piece of creativity:
The silhouette of a woman in a rather lascivious position and the writings "Steep mountains and moist valleys"
More indignation and more articles in the newspaper. The town of Triberg won't be forgotten too soon, at least until there are the real news again!
Next step, the picture of the woman has been painted over again.
Let's see if there is more to come..

By the way, these are the famous waterfalls and there is the largest cuckoo's clock of the world, too. So when you are in this region, don't miss these, even if the men parking space has been removed in the meantime.
