Interesting sculpture that you can manipulate. The joints have knuckles, making them easy to move. Impressive.

As the figurines on the fountain are all movable like puppets this is really an "interactive fountain" in the beautiful old town of Aachen.

While in Aachen the famous Doll Fountain (Puppenbrunnen) (1975) by the Aachen sculptor Boniface Stirnberg was shrouded. Each figure has a meaning and have movable joints, but we didn't get to experience it. Allow for ~15 minute for your visit.

Unfortunately, this was still boxed up when we came to visit with no apparent indication of when it would be on display again. Hopefully it won’t be too long as it looks like it would be a very interesting thing to see.

Located in Centrum, this s is a lovely sculpture. It is worthwhile a quick visit but a trip here just for this, is not recommended.

This is just a fun visit and the kids will love it as they can adjust the dolls. Keep the kids and adults entertained on your quest for the next excitement in Aachen

Good to see for both adults and children. You probably won't miss it if you ramble in the centre. It seems to be currently closed (behind a wooden partition) though.

This statue highlights Aachen's historic origins in puppet manufacture. I always show it to visitors if we're near by. I like the fact that it's interactive so you can adjust the puppets into different shapes and which way they're facing etc.
