  • In the North West corner of the Willi-Horter-Platz, the inner courtyard of the current City Hall, is the fountain of Schangel, symbol of Koblenz. It is the work of the sculptor Carl Burger and is dedicated to the Koblenz Josef Cornelius dialectal poet who wrote the text of an ode to the Schangel, became the local anthem. The name Schangel comes from the 20 years of the French period of the city, from 1794 to 1813. It referred to children born in this era of french father and German mother, and who then called most often Johann or Hans (equivalent of John more difficult to pronounce for Germans). The dialect of Koblenz transformed "John" in "Salt", and finally in short Schangel. Today the appellation has lost his somewhat pejorative notion and is attributed to all native children of the city. The newsboy of Koblenz has become symbol of gaiety and the art of living of the inhabitants. It is found to also declined in many forms in the city. As the figure of bronze springs from time to time a powerful jet of water, better be careful in is approaching!
