Fountains of Wangen im Allgäu

Perhaps the most unique attribute of Wangen is its fountains. There are several well preserved hold-outs from centuries past, but the stars of the show are a series of seven “Figure Fountains” installed in the 1980s and 90s. These are not even slightly traditional, in a conventional European fountain way, instead they are off-beat, whimsical, and in some cases, more than a little sarcastic.

These fountains are unlike ANY you’ve ever seen! You’ll laugh, be in awe and even get a scare! For more info:
