Interesting old fountain located in the large square of the Residence Palace. Enjoy a photographic opportunity or sit and rest and enjoy the sounds of running water.

When you go to the Residenz take a little extra time to look at the fountain. Also, don't miss the gardens which can be found behind the Residenz.

We joined a walking tour of the city and this huge fountain is in front of a vast palace. If you walk around to the left of the buildings through beautiful wrought iron gates you can wander around a lovely garden.

The statue, Franconia, with the fountain was a photo spot for visitors while waiting to enter the Residenz. It appeared that this statue was protecting the Residenz.
