The former Waisenhaus is the police-station now.
In 1657 this building was built as a public home for orphants and in front of it you will see nowadays the so-called Meret-Oppenheim-Brunnen, made by Meret Oppenheim, a surrealistic swiss artist and that fountain is quite funny with water running down on a cascade made of grass and moss.
Directions: This building and the Oppenheim-fountain are at the end of Waisenhausplatz.
