    Located at the intersection of two streets in the historic center of Aachen, this fountain of dolls will delight children as members of the characters are hinged and can be manipulated by onlookers. On the aesthetic and artistic level, tastes differ and, for my part, I find this work very kitsch, to put in the funny, but not in the inevitable.

    This work of art is really worth for to walk. We came here for the first time when our children were still very small. They were fascinated by the dolls that they could put in all kinds of attitudes. Now came the uncertain youngest of 13, know doll could not recall but they really liked and pressure to the gang went with them in all kinds of attitudes. Also we would like to play there briefly.

  • This "brunnen" are all over downtown Aachen. This pupets are nice. Plus, you'll always see pedestrian comedy along this walk. Totally recomended.
  • In Aachen, there are several fountains and sculptures all over the city, but especially so in the city center. The above is one of them, in Krämerstrasse, a small shopping street between the Rathaus and the Cathedral. Obviously, a favorite place for tourists, Der Puppenbrunnen (The Puppet Fountain), with its many moveable parts, captivates children and adults alike. The history of Aachen is depicted by figures of a knight, his horse, a bishop, a professor, a harlequin, and various carnival masks, and finally, a crowing rooster on the top.
  • A beautiful piece of work. The puppets even articulate.
  • Amazing display of fountain with the puppets
  • Every time the characters are different, interesting again and again on the new. Here, the artist and the city have proved far-sighted.
