I like German dry sense of humour and this is manifested in these bronze statues with unpronouncable name. The way the statues postures next to each other show the flow of money or favour from one to a other, perhaps in criminal or underhanded manner....More

Aachen has several fun fountains. This one, "the circulation of money" is perhaps a cautionary tale!

In the vicinity to Münsterplatz and Elisenbrunnen you find this nice fountain decorated with different characters showing how they handle money.

Aachen has a number of these quirky bronze statues. This one is called the cycle of money; not sure whether it's pro or con! The water isn't cold so I assume it's fed from the local hot springs. Worth a look.

This fountain represents the circle of money, with a critic view on corruption. I found it very amusing and deep in meaning, other than being albs very well executed. worth it

I went to see the church and was walking past this. I found the people to be weird and creepy. Whatever point the artist was trying to make I must have missed.

Funny fountain titled "cycle of the money". The sculptures around it all allude to money. Apparently the water always keeps flowing as it's warm thermal water. Not really something to call an attraction but nice to see.
