The statue turned out to be much smaller than I'd imagined it, and it's oriented so the boy only spits at people looking at him from quite close by. I'd been looking forward to chortling at casual passers-by getting spat at on their way to work or to do the shopping, but it won't happen. After you've seen the statue,... More

My wife and I happened upon this statue/fountain while exploring the city ourselves (not part of a tour) and had no idea that it was going to spit water until it nearly drenched us! After the water, all of the clues became visible that we had missed before, but we thought it was just an interesting statue of a boy... More

We saw this fountain as part of the points of interest of our self guided walking tour of Koblenz . It was a nice sight as it fits perfectly in the black and white surroundings h

The Schangelbrunnen is one of the many sculpture fountains to be found in Koblenz. A lot of these have a childrens theme so it is great to rent a bike and cycle around Koblenz so that you can see all of them. In comparison to the Noah's ark fountain and the others that can be found on Lohrsstrasse this one... More

There was a fair going on which made this square fun and pretty all at the same time. Crowded but lively with a stage and band set up behind the fountain. Fun time with beer and song!

A fun experience to watch & count the time between spouts. This fountain has an interesting history to its name so check it out. It's located opposite the Rathaus. Spring time is beautiful & this area demonstrated it in flower boxes & gardens.

The Schängel fountain is located at the Town Hall Square, surrounded by the Baroque buildings of the Jesuit ensemble, designed in 1940 by Carl Carl Burger and is dedicated to the poet Josef Cornelius, who wrote the text of the Schängellied, the national anthem of Koblenz. The term Schängel got its origin from the 20-years (1794-1813) in which it belonged... More

Schangelbrunnen is a spitting boy statue located in the courtyard near the Rathaus(city hall). It is a must-see statue when one visits Koblenz as it is a very historical and well-known statue in this city and is a stop on every guided tour. Watch out for the wet spot on the ground and avoid standing there when admiring the statue... More
