  • The street of the statues is near the street of this statue. The statue of the Devourer of children is the most impressive. Her source was the only one who was working at the time of snow in January. This region is well it's nice to know central walking. Stay right next to the clock (which is another tourist spot).

  • Located on a street well located face to stop the train. The statue is intriguing, for its history and form.

  • This fountain is the only one I have sent mixed emotions: on the one hand, the desire to know more (being one of the most famous fountains of Bern) on the other ... that anxiety! It was built in 1500 and would represent the idea of the "Jewish child eaters" released at that time in Europe. To confirm this thesis would have also been the original yellow color associated to the Jewish religion. Some people say that it represents the Titan Kronos. In 1800 it was repainted with the current color. The statue actually loved me, the underlying capital instead really worked (although even here we find Satanic images, as the heads of the caproni). In general the fountain has been kept very well ... though ... just too disturbing to me. De gustibus.
