Fasnacht-Brunnen (Carnival Fountain)

Fasnacht-Brunnen (Carnival Fountain) Review

Created by the Swiss artist Jean Tinguely, known for his work in mechanized media, this witty, animated construction was inaugurated by the city in 1977. Its whimsically styled metal figures busily churn, lash, and spray with unending energy. It is especially impressive in winter when the jets of water freeze, creating unique airborne sculptures.
