    Cartwheel Fountain

    Favorite thing: I always love to see the monuments in cities and I found Dusseldorf's Radschläger (Cartwheel Fountain) especially enchanting.
    It was erected in 1954 by Alfred Zschorsch in the middle of Burgplatz. This lovely fountain is a throw back to days when the youth of Dusseldorf used to cartwheel in front of spectators, who would then throw them a few pennies as a reward for their efforts.
