This fountain has the sculpture of Annie Of Tharau. Beautifully located in Klaipeda Theater Square, where the Drama theater is situated.

The statue of the little girl, Annchen, is in theatre square. Annchen von Tharau is a poem by Simon Dach, and the statue is of her. She has her back to the theatre because Hitler gave a speech from it’s balcony in 1939.

This statue harmonizes the whole square - it is surrounded by beautiful and not big buildings, and represent a pretty good view for photo.

Although there are sculptures in every city or town, Klaipeda - in my opinion - really abounds in interesting and special or unusual ones. Annchen has been described in a well-known poem and was probably quite an inspiration for the poet who wrote it.

During a guided tour you will find Ännchen on the Opera place in front of a building, where Hitler held a speech; therefor Ännchen turned her back to the balcony.

Do not overthink this. It's a statue to someone 99.9% have never heard of. See it during your walking tour of then Old Town. The handicraft market is held around this Statue.

On the day I visited there were some stalls selling souvenirs from the city. In the building behind this statue the guide informed us that Hitler made a speech during the occupation of the country.
