“Don't Stand Too Close!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

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 at first. Anyhow, it was fun to see it in action and there is a really nice square just beyond the statue to sit and have a coffee or beer and take-in the altstadt.

“Overrated in comparision to some of the other fountains in Koblenz”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

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 is somewhat overrated.

“fountain”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

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!

“The Water Spouting Boy Fountain.”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

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.
