The Wilhelmina Fountain is taller than expected. It has a prominent position on De Brink. It is a magnet for people to sit near or children to play around.

The "Wilhelminafontein" was unveiled in 1898, in the year that Queen Wilhelmina was crowned. It is a landmark on the Brink, the central square in Deventer. A curious detail is, that in the '60s of last century, traffic flow over the Brink was designated as so important, that the Wilhelminafontein was removed, to make room for traffic. Luckily, the fountain was restored in the '80s of last century and traffic is all but banished from the Brink.

This fountain was built in 1898 and is just a few steps from the museum De Waag. It's located on the other end of the central town square. It consists of a central statue carved to have 3 sides, each with a cherub playing a horn, overhanging the water basin. On the outside of the basin are in turn three nautilus shells.
