Haptic maps in Germany

Several towns in Germany have maps of the town for the visually impaired.

Here's Munster:
Several Braille maps of the city are scattered around town (Munster, Germany) to help the visually impaired find their way. Ironically, these also serve as a good visual reference for the sighted.
I'm not sure which town this is:
German Engineering at its Finest (and Nicest!)

This is a haptic map of the Wild Kermeter trail:

City of Marburg:
Arno Kraußmann and Claus Duncker, handing over the business card in Braille script to Mayor Egon Vaupel

This one is actually the Rosetta MacLain Garden in Scarborough, Ontario:
