    This bronze statute depicts a crew of very interesting characters! I am interested in reading the satire it depicts as I was unsure of the connections between the figures. I must say each is very deta...  more »

    You can see this beautiful piece of art in the distance with its flowing sail and animated faces of the characters on the ship of fools. Walk all around it and look to see who's on board. The artist c...  more »

    Then, in 1988, the fountain of Jürgen Weber met with fierce criticism. The artwork is neo-Baroque kitsch, etc. Today, the fountain of fools ship among attractions in Nuremberg. So the times are changing. I mean, that distinguished the fountain sculpture in the overall ensemble of the nameless square between the Museum bridge, Spitalgasse and Plobenhofgasse inserts.

  • Nothing much to see here... The fountain 100 meters further is much nicer too see.

Where to stay in Nuremberg

The Altstadt and the Egidienviertel districts, the city's historical sections, provide an array of guesthouses and hotels. An alternative is the Gostenhof area, a suburban region with a selection of tourist sites. If you stay in Gostenhof, however, you need to take public transportation to the city center. For local flair, consider staying in the Knoblauchsland district near the Hauptmarkt. Avoid the Südstadt district near the train station, which is mainly residential and doesn't offer many entertainment options or access to sites.
