The Hans Sachs Brunnen in Nuremberg, Bavaria

I had a great time with friends today. We made a trip to Nürnberg or Nuremberg, a city in the state of Bavaria, Germany. We made a little sightseeing and shopping too. I don’t plan to go shopping today but I ended up buying some winter boots that are on sale. It was a wonderful day despite the raindrops the whole day.

Here is one of the images I took during our visit today in this Franconian City. This is called the Ehekarussel, known in English as Marriage Carousel. It was created by Jürgen Weber in 1984 according to a poem by Hans Sachs. That is also the reason why it is also named as Hans Sachs Brunnen or Hans Sachs Fountain.

this is a heart -shaped stone in front of the Marriage Carousel where you can read the poem of Hans Sachs in German language.
The Ehekarussel is a modern fountain located near the Weisser Turm or White Tower, one of the gate towers of the older town fortification in Nuremberg.
