Angela Merkel alongside Mark Rutte are part of the Bastille Day parade which has turned into violent clashes between police and protestors.
Each fountain is comprised of a four-storey-high, bronze-alloy pole that supports three descending arms made of pieces of Swarovski cut crystal studded with LED lights.
Since the demonstrations began on Nov 17, some 1,900 people have been hurt, including dozens who suffered serious injuries from stun grenades or rubber bullets fired by police.
Five other must-see fountains around the world are the Trevi Fountain in Rome, the Magic Fountain of Montjuic in Barcelona, the Dubai Fountain in Dubai, the Banpo Bride Rainbow Fountain in Seoul, and Singapore's Fountain of Wealth.
Police fired tear gas to disperse protesters who erected barricades near the Champs-Elysees in scenes reminiscent of some of the tensest 'yellow vest' rallies.
The attack was carried out by a man who had been on France's security watchlist since 2015 over ties to "the radical Islamist movement."
