Basel, icy Tinguely Fountain

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Der Tinguely Brunnen ist wohl einer der berühmtesten Brunnen der Neuzeit in Basel. Erbaut wurde er vom 1991 verstorbenen Künstler Jean Tinguely im Jahre 1977. Die mit Schwachstrom betriebenen Maschinenplastiken sind vor allem im Winter bei eisigen Temperaturen, unbeschreiblich schön und eindrucksvoll.

The Tinguely fountain is probably one of the most famous fountain in the modern era of Basel. It was built by the artist Jean Tinguely, who died in 1991 in 1977. The machine operated with low current sculptures are mainly in the winter with freezing temperatures, incredibly beautiful and impressive.
