Koblenz, like Bremen, has its own sculpture with attitude. Instead of child urinating, this bronze sculpture spits jets of water from its mouth. The secret behind this fountains’ story lies in its name. Koblenz was once a part of France, and kids born here at that time were called Franco-Germans who were often called Jean (after the German Johann or Hans). In local dialect, this was developed into “Shang”, a diminutive of Jean. The statue itself is dedicated to the poet Josef Cornelius, and was built in 1940.

So when you hear of Koblenz being filled with ‘happy little squirts’, you’re not wrong. The square around this statue, right outside the town hall, is usually quite lively. It’s a fun place to hang out. The buildings are beautiful – usually Renaissance or Baroque.

  • I still remember how my teacher, Herr Dörner, pranked me there. It's a very funny memory :D

  • It's a fountain!

  • Super

  • Das Wahrzeichen von Koblenz. Schängel ist die Bezeichnung für die in der Stadt Koblenz geborenen Jungs (heute auch Mädchen). Koblenz wird auch oft als Schängel-Stadt bezeichnet. Den Schängel widmete man 1914 ein Karnevalslied und baute ihnen 1941 im Rathaushof einen Brunnen, der zu einem Wahrzeichen der Stadt wurde. Aus Wikipedia übernommen. Do lange es warm ist "spuckt" der Schängel regelmäßig.

  • Simpática fuente del pequeño Schängel. Cada tanto sorprende a los incautos con un chorro de agua.
