These character statues represent the two sides of Cologne; the civilized and the barbarians; the good and the bad. Stand on the feet and be sure to rub the nose for good luck - or just because you should.

Tucked away near the Alter Markt, they are funny statues. Worth spending a couple of minutes there. More interesting is the high water marker on a pillar nearby which shows the extraordinary levels the Rhine has reached over the years.

Enjoyed reading about the story behind these statues, but did my own research as there was no information with these statues - a plaque of information next to these statues would be good for people like myself who weren't part of a walking tour. Off...More

We visited Tunnes & Schal as part of a walking tour. They're two charming characters from Cologne pop culture. You rub one's nose for love and the other's hand for wealth. Nice place to visit if in the area!

I just love that the town planners have given such an arty vision to the city of Cologne with various installations to be seen - free and part of the landscape. These bronze statues are of local characters. Love it!

Cologne seems to be a city very sure of its identity with a number of interesting legends. The story behind these two, 'Kolsch' and 'Immi' says a lot about the locals view of the world and is worth checking out before you visit the two...More

For me not a big attraction in Cologne. We visited them before a match of 1. FC Köln but unfortunately it didn't help because they lost.
