Aachen’s moving sculptures

The Puppenbrunnen (puppet/doll fountain), created by Bonifatius Stirnberg in the 1970s reminds us that Aachen is a curious mix of religion, education, theatre, music, horse-riding, fashion and carnival.

While Bonifatius wanted his sculptures to be touched and to move, he didn’t like them moving too far. In 2004 he sued the council for moving his horse sculpture 20 meters when the railway station was refurbished.
