Best Hikes to Mosaikbrunnen
  • Hike with Maik⛰️🌲🏃

    The mosaic fountain was built on the occasion of the International Horticultural Exhibition of 1926 according to a design by Hans Poelzig and his wife Marlene Moeschke-Poelzig in the style of Art Deco. The shape of the fountain is designed to match the surroundings, based on a plant. Three stylized flowers grow from a round fountain bowl. The entire fountain is covered with around half a million mosaic stones in the colors earth brown, gray, green, blue, orange, yellow and gold. The fountain shows an expressionistic design language with oriental influences.

  • Erected in 1926 on the occasion of a horticultural exhibition, three calyxes in Art Decó style grow out of the basin of the mosaic fountain. A total of around 500,000 stones adorn the fountain, which was last restored in 2016.

  • The fountain was built in 1926 for the International Horticultural Exhibition. It was actually supposed to be dismantled afterwards, but was then put up permanently. Preservation is difficult due to the nature of the design combined with the impact of water. It had to be repaired again and again, so it often stood dry. Since 2016 it can be seen again in full beauty.
    In contrast to the earlier process water, drinking water with a low lime content is currently used in order to maintain the well longer.

  • At this point / I would like to quickly / say something about the source
    (whereby it corresponds to the art of poetry / if this 'source' is a 'well'):
    To quote the incomparable humorist Heinz Erhardt (1909 - 1979), who was known to a wide audience for his word jokes and "Noch'n poem", with a short quatrain:
    "There is certainly much beauty in
    on the element, the wet.
    Because you can drink the water.
    But you can - also leave it."

  • Near the fountain is an old oak tree that is almost completely hollow.
