  • Front of the fountain, you can see all kinds of people. Most are waiting for anyone. Fountain to cool off during the summer is used, wash on Ash Wednesday to the purse. And the lads go swimming in it. And all very central.

  • Tourists visiting the square fountain are on the edge of Marienplatz square in fine enough, but seems too unaware this fountain presence. Most tourists are looking up at the top of the clock, City Hall, the eye does not go to those on the ground.

  • In the Central Marienplatz is the Fischbrunnen fish fountain, with its turquoise waters in which the inhabitants have a habit to rinse their portfolios on Friday of ashes for good luck and auspicious symbol.
