You Are Here – Germany

We had eleven German cities released prior getting to this one – Starbucks You Are Here Germany mug. Believe it or not, this is the 12th mug from this country.
As for design, this is probably the first time when I can name all elements from the mug easily:

Yau Are Here – Dusseldorf

Another mug from Germany – You Are Here Dusseldorf. The total count of German mugs comes to eight. Again we see local variant of writing the name, with the O modified with what is known as an “umlaut mark”.

I see no trace of Rheinturm – a 240.5 metre high concrete telecommunications tower.… Read more
