Several sculptors were asked to create fountains for the street corners of Kaiserstraße, the main shopping mall, in the 1970s and 1980s. The topic of each fountain was to match the name of the respective side street.

The "Waldbrunnen" (forest fountain) was made by Karl Ulrich Nuss in 1984. A huge tree trunk hosts pigeons and mice, Pan playing the flute and a nymph(?).
