The Joy of Life Fountain has been in the center of the University Square in Rostock since 1980. These interesting yet often controversial sculptures were created by Jo Jastram and Reinhard Dietrich. Brunnen der Lebensfreude symbolizes the end of WWII and the city’s rebirth. It is unofficially nicknamed the Porn Fountain for obvious reasons. In the background is the main building of the University of Rostock.
