"Schöner Brunnen" Top 5 Page for this destination Schöner Brunnen - Beautiful Fountain Tip by antistar

  Schöner Brunnen, Nuremberg
by antistar

An outstanding feature of the marketplace is the accurately named Schöner Brunnen (Beautiful Fountain). Originally built around 1385 it was replaced with a replica earlier last century. The stone tower is 62 feet high and contains the statues of the Electors, along with heroes of Christian and Jewish heritage. Set into the railings around the octagonal pool is a golden ring that is supposed to grant you wishes if you should turn it three times before asking.

Address: Hauptmarkt
Directions: Walking up Konigstr. from the station you can find the fountain in the main market square in the top left hand corner.
