It's Not A Volcanic Landscape

Diese Gelegenheit musste ich einfach nutzen. Wann sind schon so viele Wassersprudler in Betrieb? Die sogenannten "Berger Sprudler" befinden sich im Rosensteinpark und sind schon besondere Hingucker. Zur Zeit wird hier gebaut, deshalb stören auch Baugruben den wunderbaren Ausblick. Links im Hintergrund ist das SWR-Gebäude zu sehen.
I had to use this opportunity! The sputterers are actuated not every day! These eye-catchers are situated in the Rosensteinpark. There are some construction works in the moment. Therefore the pits spoil the beautiful view. In the background on the left you see one of the buildings of the broadcasting corpoation named "SWR". 
Ein Sprudler aus ganzer Nähe, dahinter noch einer und dann wieder das Riesenrad vom Volksfest.
One of the sputterers seen at close range. Behind it you see a second sputterer. And on the left there is the big wheel of the ... right, of the "Volksfest".

Great fountains. Do they spurt different water patterns?

Interesting. I will have to ask my husband about the "sputterers". Not sure what that is. Is is something natural or manmade?

@Bill: No, they don't. But the spurts are different from sputterer to sputterer.
@Halcyon: They are made from concrete.

There are 10 sputterers. The cones are 5 metres high and symbolize the sources of mineral water in Stuttgart. But is is only normal water from the river Neckar.

sputterers is a nice name for these fountains.

Fascinating! They were built just to spice things up a bit? Kinda weird but I like them!
