  • ... and Puppenbrunnen proves this point, characters and animals have a head and limbs on movable joints, so you can install them in all sorts of positions. Wrong with taking pictures, because it's still someone playing with the characters, especially adults:-)

  • Very old puppet fountain, moveable parts on metal marrionette figures. A must see for tourists passing through.
  • The best relaxing place in city center. Always kids are playing here with their parents..
  • 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.
