Watch Out or This German Fountain Will Spit on You

The quaint, historic area of Old Sachsenhausen in Frankfurt, Germany is chock-full of pubs serving apple wine, the city’s most popular drink. On the Klappergasse, a small cobbled alleyway, you’ll find a spitting statue immortalizing Frau Rauscher, a staunch, apple wine-loving wench made infamous in a well-known German song.

The inscription near the water-shooting woman, translated into English, says, “The market woman from the Klappergasse has a bump on her head. Whether that comes from drinking alcohol or by her husband, the police will clarify.”
