While the fountain is indeed in the middle of the square, this alone wasn’t the highlight for me. The highlight was siting on the fountain and imagining Hitler being here in person and Stalin’s tanks rumbling through the square. Puts a lot in perspective. Highly...More

Important to see in the main square of the city if you are there but not for going out of your way. Try to pass it.

Such installations are great in reminding us about the uncertainty of human life. A paradise such as this also can be invaded by wrath from hell. The tower is just in center of the town square, for all to see.

Ok. So it is another plague column in Europe. A reminder of the suffering of people at that time( people suffer differently today) and the improvements made by science. Don’t look for it, you will see it anyway. Good orientation point.

This is a large column with a fountain around it. Visually pleasant, all towns built these columns to commemorate the Trinity as a tribute the the plagues were over.
