Tünnes and Schäl are two figures from the puppet theater of Cologne. There are statues of them in the Alter Markt. They never actually existed, but were invented by Johann Christoph Winter (1772-1862). The good-natured but dim Tünnes is constantly being taken in for a ride by the cunning and crafty Schäl.
Many people rub the noses of the statues of Tünnes and Schäl because it is believed that doing so will bring good luck. During our VT meeting in Cologne on May 24, 2008, we stopped to take a photo by the statues of these famous puppet characters.
