Max Reger memorial and Triton fountain
In Max-Reger-Park stands the Max Reger memorial, which was created by the Weiden sculptor Josef Gollwitzer in 1957. It is a mighty block of granite – modeled on organ pipes – that is dedicated to the composer, who lived with his parents in Weiden on and off between 1874 and 1901
The Triton fountain can be found here too, created in 1953 by the same artist. It represents the showpiece of the Max-Reger-Anlage. The central focus of the fountain is a bronze statue of Triton, the Greek god of the sea, with its human torso and fishlike lower body. In summer, up to 40 cm3 (1,412.6 cubic feet) of water flows out of the god’s conch shell (a Triton’s trumpet).
In the summer months, the "Weidener Sommerserenaden" are held in Max-Reger-Park.
The Storchenbrunnen adorns the boulevard. The fountain has been standing in Kurt-Schumacher-Allee since 1974. Before that, from 1908 to 1935, it had been placed in Oberer Markt in what is now the pedestrian zone.
The Nepomuk chapel
The Nepomuk chapel stands at the entrance to Max-Reger-Park. The “St. John Nepomuk bridge chapel” was built in 1738/1756 as the result of a vow made by Field Marshal Fellner von Feldeck. The sandstone statue of St. John of Nepomuk was created by the Nabburg sculptor Johann Franz Dult.
