Do you have any pictures for city entrance signs for Cologne?

I like how most European countries have city entrance signs for everywhere, nor Portugal nor the UK have them (not everywhere), and very unusually at administrative borders

City entrance sign in Plattdüütsch

The entrance signs of the German town Gildehaus close to the border with The Netherlands have been renewed, and they now include the name of the town in Plattdüütsch (to be exact: Graofschupper plat).

A curiosity... as far as I know, there is no signals about you enter in Madrid. You know only if you are inside or outside the municipality because there are signals for taxi drivers pointing which fare they must use (A fare = Madrid municipality, B fare = surroundings).

Should you take a taxi around M-40, the part of journey out of the municipality will be payed more expensive, even if you start and end inside Madrid.

Does Spain have city-entrance signs?

Yeah, but they're probably like Portugal, often not used with larger places

Yes, but only for towns and villages, great cities don't use entrance signs.

Can you repeat? . This is on the 5th largest city of Spain. I remember there was one of end of Zaragoza at the very end of E804 near the so-called Averly, but it was downgraded to a city street up to the E90 some years ago.

But that's not the most common, you can find it in Zaragoza probably because it's a very compact city with no metropolitan area and distinct limits.

I didn't say never, I just said 'often'. Coimbra in Portugal has some, but Figueira (which isn't a major city and is in fact quite small) doesn't

You can find it because it is an old signal (today it is the A-23, E-07).
Even if compact city, new entrances to the city or refurbishment do not have the signal of the entrance. And in the old ones, any refurbishment will take out the signal usually.

But still there are signals, and I think I remember the name located in all directions when you entered the city.
