The Kreislauf des Geldes Brunnen (sometimes also just 'Geldbrunnen' = 'Moneyfountain') was created by the German sculpturer Karl-Henning Seemann in 1976.
Six figures are placed around the fountain in a circle; a father showing his child the handling of money, a beggar, and three figures representing greed, patronage, and stinginess.
The figures are well executed and really reflect the theme. Overall it's an interesting piece of art.
The water flow forms a vortex but runs anti-clockwise.
The fountain was donated by a large German bank.
Fun & Interesting
The water comes from the Aachen thermal spring which is the reason that the fountain also runs during winter.
The fountain is prominently located at the end of the Elisengarten and gives a view of the cathedral. A very nice surrounding to explore further.
