This delightful fanciful sculpture is a symbol of Mainz. I consider it a must-see.
It's in Schller Plaza and includes a nice garden and fountain and stature of Schiller

This beautiful and a bit bizarre fountain is a must see. I saw it on a bright and sunny morning, and there was a very visible rainbow formed from the water spray. I enjoyed walking around and noticing all the different characters on the fountain.

Weird looking fountain, not something I'd go out of my way to see but if you are in centre of Mainz you might give it a quick look.

We stumbled across this interesting fountain by chance. Looks a bit of a mess from a distance but if you get up close you an see all the carnival characters that give the fountain its name. Well made and unique if not to everyone's taste. There are also one or two statues in the same area.

The fountain and the square are modern art horror show. Not something that stays with you for good reason

This unique sculpture is strangely beautiful and appropriately named. It is called Fastnachtsbrunnen or Carnival Fountian. To take it all in, you have to stare at it and look all over the sculpture to enjoy all that is going on.

An almost nine meter high tower-like structure made of bronze, with more than 200 bronze figures and allegories. Known as the carnival fountain and is located on the Schillerplatz. Taking three years to construct, it was unveiled in January 1967. An impressive fountain and worth a visit if you are in the area. Several other monuments / statues may also be found near by.

Fountain built in the 1960s made up of little people celebrating a festival (most likely Lent). It is set in a nice small plate with lots of benches and flowers. A relaxing spot to sit and just stare at this strange creation.

This unusual fountain is located on Schillerplatz in front of the Osteiner Hof. The fountain is full of allegories and historic references. It depicts the customs of the carnival the fun-time preceding the Lent. the fountain was created in 1960s.

If you come here by chance, it's ok.
But don't come here on purpuse. It's not worth it.
It's a strange fountain.
