On my tour through the palace of Jindřichův Hradec, I came across this well. It looks like a piece from a fairy tale, doesn’t it? The castle is notable for a roundel, which is one of the principal works of the Bohemian Renaissance.
Someone in Vienna obviously doesn’t like monuments. The photo shows the Gänsemädchenbrunnen, a fountain located near the Museumsquartier in Vienna. The sculpture features a girl herding geese. The creator of this work was the Czech sculptor Antonín Pavel Wagner.
This fountain is located in Mürzzuschlag, a city known for a lot of steel processing plants nearby. I don’t like the shape of the fountain but I love the idea behind the used material. The fountain made of stainless steel reminds of the fact that the development of stainless chrome steel has been started in this region in 1912.
The ‘Schöner Brunnen’ is one of the most beautiful fountains I have ever seen and is placed at the central place of Nuremberg. A ring embedded in the fence surrounding the fountain is said to bring good luck to those who spin. Another version told me spinning the ring rises your fertility. So be careful!
The lindworm fountain placed at the Neue Platz is the landmark of the Carinthian capital city Klagenfurt am Wörthersee. The sculpture was created in 16th century and refers to the foundation legend of the city. More…
It was really a cold day when I took this photo of a frozen fountain on the grounds of the Würzburg Residence (Würzburger Residenz). The Baroque palace which was completed in 1744 is part of the UNESCO World Heritage List.
