“Wherever water flows, so too do life and communication because wherever there is water, there are people who will come together.”
Ulrich Witzmann designed a fountain for the historic market square of the Rhine-Hesse town of Nierstein, a focal meeting place for the people of Nierstein and the tourists who travel along the Rhine as well. The middle point of the fountain is a10 foot tall beveled ceramic tower, down which water perpetually cascades and forms fascinating waves.
In the summer, children can come to sail their miniature ships in the fountain’s sparkling waters. The stone blocks, which surround the fountain, provide a perfect place for visitors to sit and rest.
