The inventor's fountain in the pedestrian zone is a beautiful eye-catcher. At first glance, the fountain looks like a ship with many animals and is therefore often referred to as Noah's Ark.However, there is no precise explanation for the fountain. Only the three animals at the edge of the well seem to have a more precise meaning. The turtle is supposed to represent the car maker August Horsch and his AUDI.Then there is a fish with a motor. This means Nikolaus August Otto from the Taunus, who was primarily involved in the invention of today's gasoline engines. The bird on the ship represents another inventor, namely the aircraft manufacturer Carl Clemens Brücker.travelcircus.de/urlaubsziel/koblenz-sehenswuerdheiten
