One of the most amazing fountains I have seen. Not the largest, but incredible detail on the characters, apparently telling the story of a relationship (though hard to see that at points!) Often crowds around it, but worth taking the time to walk around and...More

Grotesque images of the various stages of married life in big brass statue form. Really close to a U Bahn station so easy to get too. In an open air square that would be great for a picnic lunch

This controversial and grotesque sculpture depicts a rather cynical view about the cycle of marriage. Comprised of couples in various grotesque and explicit situations, we found it endlessly amusing.

There are plenty of intriguing fountains and statues dotted around the city. The scale and awe of this fountain knocks the others out the park. You can't just walk past it, you'll have study every angle. Monsters and images of love life and death are...More

The fountain is big enough to find a place to sit on its edge and to enjoy a quick picnic (good bratwurst rolls at a snack bar just a few meters away) but the sculptures will provoke different opinions. We found them just plain ugly...More

Great statue - but I had no idea what it was suppose to represent. I can totally appreciate the art work and skill of the sculpture makers and this one is probably the best of the sculptures in the town centre.

Based on a poem by a Nurnberger, Hans Sachs, this fountain shows the 6 stages of marriage. Funny in places, the final stage is scary.

Although it represents stages of marriage this fountain has very wired stages, every stage comes with a mythical animal. It's interesting anyway.

It titled "Marriage Carousel" and was completed in just 1984. It highlights 6 stages of marriage, from the beginning passion, through gluttony, until finally, as I show in my photos "til death do us part", where the wife is strangling the husband to death, both...More
