  • In Koblenz, as in other cities in Germany, there are many unusual, curious and comic allotments, sculptures and fountains. One such amusing fountain can be seen on Lohrstrasse Street, which is located outside the Old Town, next to the Koblenz Stadtmitte railway station. The fountain depicting the inhabitants of Noah's Ark was created in 1983. Its author is the German sculptor Gernot Rumpf, whose work I have seen in other German cities (sculpture of the Bridge Monkey in Heidelberg, the fountain "Kaiserbrunnen" in Constanta). Rotating parts of this curious design cause an incredible amount of water splashes, which delights the baby. But why the fountain in Koblenz is called "The Inventor" - and remained a mystery to me.
