Whilst wandering about Sindelfingen, you will come across some crossings which have marble in them, you can't miss them as they are near the market square.

Many years back, when Sindelfingen had more money than today, it invested into marble zebrastripes, directly next to the market square. They are still there and actually not very special. It doesn't take five minutes to see them and I would recommend to actually go...More
