Die Heinzelmännchen

I almost forgot about the story Annagret told me about the elves of Cologne. 

Unfortunately the fountain wasn’t working when we were there, but it was good to hear the story behind this unusual sculpture.  The carvings at the bottom show the elves making bread, cooking a pig and keeping house, whilst the nosy farmer’s wife stands at the top of the stairs looking for them.IMG_20151204_111653522
