Graffiti in Germany

Years ago, you rarely ever saw graffiti around Germany.  It was mostly in Frankfurt or the more urban areas.

Today?  Every small town has it.  The locals don't like it, and usually get peppy with the mayor and city council over it.  But there's very little you can do....except paint over it.

Gangs?  No.  You just don't find youth gangs much in Germany.  It's mostly kids with little to do....except to get in trouble for stupid stuff.

This was in Eltville, along a scenic street going to the river.  It's the last place you'd expect someone to do a graffiti job.
