The first thing you see when you get out of the Uban (metro station). It is in the heart of the city centre. A beatiful and quite big fountain that represents the positives and negatives of the married life. It is something you have to see for sure. Then again, you can't really miss it!!

To anyone who can read German, this magnificent fountain symbolizes the ups and downs of married life from marriage to death. To everyone else... WHat is going on?! either way worth while to pass by and admire on your journey through the old town. Located on the North East side of the White Tower (East of the St. Elisabeth church).

What a weird statue/fountain! There was no water but at least it didn't distract you from the weirdness of the statue. With a man standing on a corn stalk to a fat lady gorging herself atop of dead bear, to a swan picking its wounds while giving a ride to a family with children, and some demon skeleton figures fighting...

This is an interesting and a little bit satirical fountain that stands in the middle of a street in Nuremberg that chronicles married life from wedding and struggles of married life to death . It is located near the White Tower U-Station.
