    The pig well is a magical attraction for children. Here is climbed, felt, stroked and ridden. If Mom and Dad then get another ice cream at the Italian, everyone is happy.

    The pig fountain in Zons is certainly one of the must-see attractions in the old town. Admittedly, it doesn't actually come from the Middle Ages, but from 1959 and was created by the sculptor Bernhard Lohf. The pig fountain takes up the historical occurrence of the so-called "Zons pig feud" from the year 1575/1577, in which soldiers of the then Cologne Archbishop Salentin von Isenburg stole the Zons pig herd, consisting of 50 pigs.

    "... The five bronze pigs by Herbert Labusga were added in 1987. The fountain commemorates the Zons" pig feud ", the robbery of the Zons pig herd by soldiers of the Cologne Archbishop Salentin von Isenburg in 1577 in connection with the dispute with the Cologne Cathedral Chapter, The victorious Zonsers did not get the pigs back, as the inscription on the side indicates, but the equivalent in money.
    Viewers have to deal with the work of art in more detail in order to understand it. The inscription on the side, which explains the meaning in more detail, is particularly helpful. ... "
