  • Fountain a short walk from Karlsplatz, you can see why it is "lonely" in this esplanade. Interesting to observe, but nothing of that. If you find yourself, take a look.

  • I came across the Richard Strauss Fountain just in front of the Alte Akademie on Neuhauserstrasse, one of the main shopping streets in Munich. The fountain was created in honour of the composer, Richard Strauss. The fountain consists of a bowl atop a 6 meter high bronze column. Around the column is base relief sculptures of scenes inspired by the Strasse's opera, Salome. Water falls from the bowl in different directions, creating an illusion of a wet veil alluding to the final dance in the opera called the Dance of the Seven Veils.
  • Nice to visit, one of must see place for visitors
