Note: Everything I am writing and wrote is my opinion, taste and experience only and could be different to others. This uniqe statue looks like become bigger and bigger every almost every year. The artist probably add new part to the statue and make it more beautiful constantly. It is also fountain but it's not work all the time. The... More

Very unique statue / fountain. Worth seeing if in town. Not many towns would probably host this piece.

Every time I go there, I discover something new. It is a great place for watching people, too. The motif refers to a poem by the poet Hans Sachs and though it is a contemporary work (it was completed in 1984) it has a most baroque air to it. The word "abundance" comes to mind - do go and see... More

Built in 1984 by Brunswick sculptor Jürgen Weber, it describes married life, in a sarcastic way. Based on a poem of Hans Sachs, a 16th c. German mastersinger, poet, playwright and shoemaker.The poem is there, on a heart, made out of green-pink veined Portuguese marble. A lot of marble was used for this fountain and bronze for the sculptures. At... More

The statue like fountain, created by Jürgen Weber. It is written on it that relates to the poem “Bitter-Sweet Married Life” by Hans Sachs. The story of the fountain is that marriage from the first stages of love leading to exhausting marital rows right through to the deathbed.

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.
