Located on Neuhauserstrasse, just after entering the street from Karlstor is this cute little fountain. The centrepiece of the fountain is a sculpture of a Satyr (or possibly Dionysius) and boy. The water sprouts from the satyr's mouth as if spitting at the little boy. Very cute and worth a detour if in the area
Brunnenbuberl (fountain boy) is a small fountain that is interesting to see when walking along Neuhauser Straße in the Old Town. You'll find the fountain along a building corner just near Karlstor. This is one of quite a few interesting and quirky fountains situated around the Old Town. Here you will see a bronze sculpture of a nude boy, covering his eyes as a Satyr above him spits water at him. The water spills into a basin pool below. Brunnenbuberl is a curious and perhaps provocative composition. Have a quick look and then carry on with other intended sightseeing in the area.
