The Beautiful Fountain (Schöner Brunnen) in Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany

The Beautiful Fountain or Schöner Brunnen as it is called in German is a four step stone pyramid above a low octagonal water basin. It is located near the Main Market in Nuremberg in Bavaria, Germany. That is the golden pyramid like tower you can see in my picture below. We had a walk around this city last weekend. It was quite a tiring walk but I love it. You can also see the two towers of St. Sebaldus Church in the background of the picture. I remembered sitting on a bank in front of the old Rathaus or Town Hall located just opposite this Church. I told my husband that I need to sit down first and eat the sandwich that I bought in one of the shops there. I thought of buying a protein powder to give me more energy while walking around this city but I totally forgot it maybe because of excitement.

back to the Beautiful Fountain; It is around 17.3 meters high and believed to be constructed between 1395 and 1396. The master who built it might was presumably Heinrich Beheim from the Parler family. This fountain also has forty stone figures at four levels supplement with richly ornamented design. I hope I can find a closer look of this fountain in my file to share it here.
