After more than 45 years I found some of these snakes in a little river.
The German name is "Ringelnatter" and my translator tells me two Enlish expressions - "grass snake" or "ring snake".

(1) Female in the water, male on land

Doesn't "Natter" also mean "Adder"? I understand there are maybe two species of venomous snakes on the whole European Continent. Or am I mistaken? I think I saw 3 in one photo...maybe not?
