  • Certainly Monaco does not lack works and statues around the city. This one is located near Marienplatz and is a child with a wolf. Very beautiful indeed.

  • Coincidentally, we stumbled across this fountain in a small square, strolling through the center of Munich. It was installed in the early twentieth century near Maximilianstrasse. The fountain is a column at the foot of which, on four sides, water flows from a wolf's mouth into a round bowl of stone.

  • Wolf Fountain (Wolfsbrunnen) is an interesting sculpture fountain at Am Kosttor. It was built in 1904 by German sculptors sculptors Heinrich Düll and Georg Pezold. Here you find a statue figure of a small young girl backed up against the side of a wolf. The girl and wolf seem to be peering at each other. The sculpture stands upon a pillar with modest Art Nouveau style ornamentation. At the base are four wolf heads from which water spouts into a basin below. There are elegant engravings around the basin as well. Overall, this is a rather interesting fountain monument to see in Munich. Give it a few minutes if you are in the area and enjoy viewing fountains and other monuments during your travels.
  • The Wolf Fountain (also known as Rotk?ppchenbrunnen) is a fountain in the centre of Munich, the Bavarian capital. It was founded in 1904 by sculptors Heinrich D?ll and Georg Pezold. The clients are Adolf and Apollonia Wolves, who live forever in the cityscape. In a Treuchtlinger marble basin, there is a pillar with the cast stone of Little Red Riding Hood and The Wolf. At the foot of the column, four wolf heads were embedded as stone ghosts. Ore works by C. Leyrer finished. The fountain is decorated with Art Nouveau decorations.
