The Japanese sewage industry has issued "drainspotters" guides to manhole covers to raise the industry's profile:

Excerpted from another thread, I believe this celestial sewer lid also fits in the admirable manhole cover collection. It may be found in Maastricht in the deep south of the Netherlands.

Here is one that I discovered a while ago, in a park in Düsseldorf. That is, first it looked like a man hole cover to me ...

... except it is a memorial and Thank You plaque about the 2014 "Ela" storm, the damages that it did here, and the donations that supported the reconstruction of the parks.

(If a moderator would like to move the two posts, my personal feelings would not really be hurt. ;) )

Here is a manhole cover from Freiburg, BW ("Freiburg im Breisgau"), Germany. It features the city seal (see here) from the 13th century, one of the oldest in Germany.

Side note: There is another connection between that seal and "water" in Freiburg. In the 1890s the city built a container for drinking water called Wasserschlössle - actually a little château d'eau. :) The design was inspired by the city seal ...

Apparently, they like their manholes in Breisgau. Europa Park is advertised as the largest in Germany.

Maybe Mack sponsored that cover? :)  The family owns and operates that park, in addition to making rides of all kinds ...

Manhole cover from the old Dutch city of Nijmegen (founded in Roman times), near the river Waal (=Rhine). Not far from the famous labyrinth with the acoustic surprise.
