This fountain has a whole cluster of brass puppets that anyone can manipulate their features. It makes the fountain always dynamic and lots of fun.

Nice to look at, kids seem to like it, moving the parts. This is one of many statues around, part of Aachen culture. My children have played with it, and their children.

This sculpture is in a certain way interactive because you can move something of the sculpture itself such as the arms, the legs the heads of some people of the sculpture. I liked it a lot.
