Tugendbrunnen ("Fountain of Virtues") is a fountain, located close to Lorenzkirche, done by local metal-founder Benedikt Wurzelbauer between 1584 and 1589.
It shows the Christian virtues of Love, Faith, Hope, Courage, Patience and Temperateness. Above all stands the sculpture of Justice, blindfold and with a sword and a balance, to mean it is the highest virtue.
