Mauermann fountain

Mauermann fountain

The sculptor Günter Mauermann has created an impressive work of art made of bronze and granite. The fountain, which was named after him, was created in 1985/86 as a sheet of pictures with a veil of water, and can be marveled at in Unterer Markt. The sculpture is structured like a collage, which provides colorful views of the city’s history and the customs of the Upper Palatinate. The pictures have themes and show examples of people from the city – you’ll find everything from a barber surgeon to a tailor to a guitar player to a traveling artist from the fair to an alderman, all the way to a disabled beggar. The work of art is also enriched by typical scenes from the Altes Eichamt and the Latin school, as well as religious figures.
