Koblenz is a sweet place to visit. There are many charming squares, modern and ancient fountains and winding streets with pretty houses. The spitting boy statue was one of many different fountains.

The Schängel Fountain is Koblenz's trademark, and I love visiting it though I've seen it dozens of times. I think most fun is watching the delight in visitors' faces when the little rascal spits at them. Koblenz has a cheerful, cheeky spirit and the Schängel perfectly captures it.

It is always great when you can interject some humor into a city. The community here truly embraces the whimsical side of life as evidence by many of the statues throughout the city that are dedicated to everyday people. None more than this one as it is a monument to the illegitimate children of WWII and their mischievous behavior and... More

It is so much fun when you find those little idiosyncrasies when travelling. Some historical figure or artist injects their sense of humour into their work or creation(s) for all time. And this little statue does just that. Puts a smile on your face and those around you. And that is always a good thing.

You would think that a family member would remember the warning you gave them the night before and stay away from this water spitting fountain, but no! Forgetful family member will often stand right in front of it observing the statue, then jump up and scream as the water spews out of the boy's mouth! The water travels quite far,... More

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

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!
