“Not just your average monkey”
Review of Bruckenaffe

Bruckenaffe
Reviewed 6 April 2018

The monkey is somewhat hidden at the end of the bridge due to some of the construction it was like—oh, there it is. Interesting design so that you can put your face behind the mask for a photo. Just a few people there so we had to wait a bit for our photos.

You can go behind the mask of the ape and do a weard picture - people seems to like it but it's not really something special

A lot of stories are circulating about the existence of this monkey sculpture, but who knows was is true. Anyhow is a lovely monkey and maybe the most photographed one in the world.

You just cannot ignore this. Old myth : "rub the coin in its hand and ur wish comes true". Keeping my fingers crossed.

Lots of people will say this piece of art is also a commentary on people...but it's worth it to stop by if you're in town. It replaces the original brick monkey for the 16th century which was a social commentary to the religious rulers across the river. The current brass version was placed in 1977 and is said to allow you to put your own face inside the monkeys' mask and use the mirror held in its hand (paw?) for self reflection. I think it was just pretty fun..hard pressed to say it looks like a monkey unless you're seeing the feet...kinda looks like a cat otherwise. Fun to see it when you're in town.
