This fountain in the "Herrngasse" dates back to the year 1595 and belongs to the late renaissance. The figure on the top of the column represents a mermaid with two fish tails. She has a golden crown on her had and a golden scepter in her hands. In the former times took place the cattle market, today at the "Reichsstadt"-celebrations were adjusted the baker´s baptism. You can see that in the criminal museum. For the easter they adorn it with a colorful easter decoration.

This little fountain is down Herrngasse from the marktplatz on your way to the castle, right near the Franciscan Church. It is unremarkable for the most part and doesn't standout very much.

We are staying near the fountain and I'm not sure if it's actually operational since it's decorated for the holiday.

Every time we passed it (and it is on the main street, you can not avoid it) there were a lot of children playing.

This is right in the middle of the street and it is worth stopping to take a pic. I caught it in September when the flowers were beautifully in bloom, so it really shined today.
