Very colourful fountain in the middle of the Hauptmarkt. It is also spectacular at night. Not a must on the agenda if you are visiting nuremberg but you certainly will come across it. Impressive history of this fountain.

I'm not sure why I wasn't that impressed by the fountain - possible because it was towards the end of our road trip in Germany and Austria and we'd already seen so many amazing sights? Either way it's a beautiful and gothic fountain that you...More

This is a very unique landmark - you cannot help but see it when you visit the market square. It is a location families or groups reconnect after individuals go off for free time in the square.

During the 'Weihnachtsmarkt' I visited the 'Hauptmark' square and almost missed the 'Schoene Brunnen' due to all the people and all the 'huts'. Nice to see, but certainly not a must in Nuernberg.

This is quite an interesting landmark... very intricate and visually appealing. It is located very close to the downtown and is easily accessible and is worth a visit.

Der Schoene Brunnenan is an unusual and very decorative fountain which is located right next to the Hauptmarkt, the very popular town square in Old Town. It is supposed to be over 600 years old in a somewhat Gothic design. The fountain is beautifully decorated....More
