Karl Hoffacker: Jubiläumsbrunnen,
Bahnhofanlage , 68723Schwetzingen
Grand Duke Friedrich I and his civic-minded and socially committed wife Luise von Baden were so loved in Schwetzingen that a fountain was donated to them on the occasion of their golden wedding. It was inaugurated on 9 September 1906, the ruler’s 80th birthday and exactly 100 years after the constitution of the state of Baden. The fountain, together with the portrait medallions of the grand ducal couple, is plain and simple. The spout in the form of a fish-head echoes that penchant at that time for Jugendstil.
