It may take some time to get used to these sculptures in their unique setting, but they do fit and have become an inseparable landmark in the city center.

Rather goofy-looking cartoonish sculptures that appear to be painted by someone suffering a manic episode. I guess if someone calls it "art" it becomes art. I'm not calling it that. Worth a look (and maybe a derisive snort) only if one is in the area...More

You don't spend a ton of time there, but it's very cool to see and maybe take some Pictures while you're at it.

Three funny curvy colored sculptures located close to main street and center of Hannover. They give you a very good impression and feeling. You can take very nice photos with them
