Funny statue

As part of our river cruise, we had a walking tour and we went by this funny little statue. We were warned not to get close, as every once in a while, it sent out a stream of pee.

Another piece of art in Koblenz that you can see for free. It's nice to see and it's quite interesting.

Take some time to read about this fountain and it then means a lot more that you have seen it, at first sight it does not look very imprressive

This was an interesting stop on our walking tour of Koblenz. This Koblenz landmark is on Willi-Hörter Platz, the town hall courtyard. Carl Burger created it in 1940 and dedicated to local poet Joseph Cornelius. The Schängel is a symbol of Koblenz since Koblenz was conquered so many times in its history. There were many children fathered by invading troops.... More

Water will come out from the month of the boy on the fountain so remember to stay away from the "wet area" on the floor. It happens every few minutes and is quite interesting.

Great wee find. Just tucked around a corner but too hard too get to if you have a map. A very nice wee statue which spits an impressive distance every 2 mins or so. We had fun watching people get unexpectedly saturated!

Yet another nice staue and water feature in the Altstad. It's tucked away in the corner as I am sure the 'water spouting' from the boys mouth would offend some people. Fun to see however!

Although we had read about this fountain in the guide book, we had a lot of difficulty finding it but it was worth the find. The statue spouts water about every 5 minutes and we had fun sitting on a nearby bench watching passers-by expectedly or unexpectedly, being drenched.

The little fellow looks beautiful and naughty as well, stand in front of it for some time, observe it carefully and see what it comes up. You would be surprised.

Luckily this little gem is tucked away in the corner of a courtyard or lots of tourists (and maybe locals) might be getting an impromptu shower! Unassuming at a glance, the boy starts "spitting" water suddenly which is great fun for kids. Nice diversion - or you can use it for a dare on a warm summer's day!
