Property taxes were based on the width of the ground floor as it faced the main street – therefore width was increased as the stories go higher.
A yellow house was a sign of wealth,

We walked back to the ship for an early-afternoon departure:
A more relaxed late afternoon with a Viking promotion presentation at 5:30 where it was announced that two new ocean ships will be introduced to the fleet in about a year with destinations in Antarctica and Greenland/North Pole. Sounds a bit cold to me. For dinner it was a traditional German feast followed by “Name that Tune” in the lounge at 9 pm. Having no musical knowledge of that sort, I went back to our cabin, but Ade has a great time.
