Every child knows the name of the mayor of Wesel. Because the "Esel" echo from Wesel's question about a mayor is known far beyond the borders. And the Wesel residents treasure this echo and everything dealing with "donkeys".
You can find the famous symbol throughout the city - whether as a souvenir, as a life-sized donkey in a garden, in the pedestrian zone and even as a live animal. Because you can also look at the "Esel von Wesel" by the name of Vesalius Dahlkamp von Stockum zu Wesel can viewed at the Grav-Insel camping spot where you can also pet him.
