  • A truly beautiful fountain in the Resselpark...sicherlich worth the visit and the occasional photo.
    View original
  • Kaylynn fountain stands in the heart of Vienna's city centre in the western part of the Resselparks just a few meters from the underground station Karlsplatz station and in close proximity to the statue "Mother and child". The fountain was built in 1902 to commemorate the sculptor Viktor Tilgner, based on an original model from his estate. It consists of a fountain bowl of reddish granite, from which rises a bronze sculpture with two putti, keep the Gargoyle in the shape of a fish and a goose. Four water-spewing frogs is located on the edge of the fountain basin. Conclusion: So playful, it is today already nearly kitschy. The detailed work but is worth a quick look.

  • The Tilgner Fountain (Frog Fountain) is located at the small Ressel park at Karlsplatz in Vienna. This fountain is based upon an original from the estate of Austrian sculptor Viktor Tilgner and was erected in 1902. Here you find an elegantly designed bronze of two cherubs holding a fish and goose from which water spouts into a granite basin below. There are bronze frogs placed around the rim of the basin sections, providing additional playfulness and character to the monument. In the end, theTilgner Fountain is an interesting monument to see when spending time around Karlsplatz - one that children may even take a liking for. Give it a few minutes to view to enjoy while sightseeing in this area of Vienna.
  • The frogs here probably don't become princes.
