The old "Erlpeter" Fountain was built in 1541. The spring itself is located some steps away right below the rocky patches over there. In 1908 the fountain was redesigned, so you can see nowadays a little guy (Erlpeter) with a bottle, from which the water flows.

Originally the name was "ex petra" - out of the rock.

Directions: East of the church, back front of the old school.
