De Bossche Draak

  Stationsplein     more than a year ago
The Dragon Fountain is the most famous monument in the city. It was erected in 1903 as a drinking fountain, but never served this function. The statue was built in memory of the twin daughters of a local esquire who both died tragically in 1881 at the age of only 17. In 1959 one of the city's busiest roads was constructed beneath the impressive fountain. Den Boschers who are known to have an irreverent sense of humour and, some might say, big mouths often call the famous Dragon a 'Statue in honour of Mothers-in-Law'. Only a stone’s throw from the central station, the gilded statue is now usually surrounded by hasty people hurrying to catch a train or just arriving in town.
