Munich (München) is the capital and largest city of the German state of Bavaria, on the banks of River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Munich is the third largest city in Germany, after Berlin and Hamburg, and the 12th biggest city of the European Union, with a population of above 1.5 million. The Munich Metropolitan Region is home to 5.8 million people
Today, more than 1200 fountains sprinkle in Munich as private, communal or stately property. About a hundred of these fountains still bear drinking water, but first and foremost these aquatic installations are a visual delight, and the designed murmurs and ripples of water, a massage to ears strained from the din of urban life.
Many of these public gems were once the exclusive domain of courtly elite. The nobility of the Residence, for example, commissioned a number of fountains on the sprawling premises. The most prominent is located in the Brunnenhof (fountain courtyard). At the center of the patio, the 400-year-old Wittelsbacher Fountain shows the first count of the Wittelsbach dynasty, Otto the Great, standing on a pillar in knight’s armor. Around him are statues representing the Bavarian rivers Donau, Inn, Isar and Lech, and figurines of Neptune, Volcano, Juno and Ceres, representing the four elements.
