  Till Eulenspiegel in Landshut
by globetrott
 
 

Till Eulenspiegel is a historic character of Germany (he was born in 1300 and died in 1350) He was a simple man, a singer and commedian, and he was able to make fun about everyday life and also about kings and noble people and he had a certain way to do it,that he was never harmed by the kings who he had made fun about. On my photograph You will see him standing on top of a fountain in Landshut and he holds a mirror in one hand - a symbol for showing the behaviour of the kings in a mirror.
Monuments for Till Eulenspiegel will be found in many cities all over Germany ! In case that you understand some german, click on the link below and read some stories about Till Eulenspiegel.
