Ostermann Fountain



The Ostermann Fountain, which was completed in 1939, stands on the Ostermannplatz square in Cologne’s old town. The figures depicted on the fountain are references to the songs of the Cologne lyricist and singer Willi Ostermann (1876 –1936).

His music is still an indispensable part of carnival today, songs such as "Däm Schmitz sind Frau eß durchjebrannt", "Einmal am Rhein" and, of course, the Cologne anthem "Heimweh nach Köln" are among the best-known pieces.
