The Kaiserslautern Fountain

Back in August, my mom and I went to Germany to visit some longtime family friends. You might recall our bus tour in Frankfurt. Most of our time however was spent in Otterbauch, Otterburg, and the larger town of Kaiserslautern. 

Kaiserslautern is a charming town in Rhineland and is located on the edge of the Palatinate Forest. It was the favorite hunting spot of Holy Roman Empire of Frederick I who lived in the 1100's. Kaiserslautern is located on the Lauter river, hence the name. 

Nowadays, Kaiserslautern is home to 50,000 NATO employees. I want to show you more of this charming place, but today, I want to show you one of my favorite featured of the town. This lovely fountain is a representation of all the industries through out time that made Kaiserslautern thrive throughout its very long history. Check it out!

The fountain topped by a king, actually 2.

I just love this owl with its glasses and gears, very steampunk!

The elephants are another of my favorite features. I have no clue what industry they represent, but they are charming!

I actually love these insects, and the fact that the water is coming out of their bums. 

It wouldn't be K-town without the Kaiser fish!

Mom and I joking around. This photo is to remind me to never have bangs again!

This was one of those pieces of art that you could stare at for hours and still find some new detail you hadn't seen before. This has got to be one of my favorite fountains. Do you have a favorite fountain?
