Frequently Asked Questions

Why can I see the trick fountains only on a guided tour?

Because the trick fountains still function exactly the way they did 400 years ago, they can only be operated manually by our expert staff.

Will I get wet on the trick fountain tour?

You definitely need to stay alert at all times; the water jets are unpredictable. We kindly request that you take care to keep your technical devices (cameras, cell phones, video cameras, etc.) from getting wet!
