This made in 1395, is restored and looks splendid in gold. It is 19 m high, and enclosed by an iron latice around. It has also 2 rings, put on later, that you can touch and wish yourself something. During the war it was embedded in concrete.

Der Schoene Brunnen (Beautiful Fountain) is located in Nuremberg's Main Square (Hauptmarkt). It was originally made in 1390, but replaced a century ago by a copy. The stonework includes some 40 figures. Good luck is said to come to you if you turn the ring incorporated into the ironwork of the fountain and make a wish.
The Square houses a market selling high quality fresh produce, flowers, cheese, meat etc. Several stalls sell the local speciality Lebkuchen, spicy ginger cookie containing hazelnuts and almonds. The fountain and square are well worth a visit.

A truly magnificent fountain. You have to find the Golden Ring and touch it, just this fountain is worth a visit

My wife & I visited this touristy section of Nuremberg on Sunday 5/4. It was fun, the surrounding square's architecture was that of a typical German "Old Town," & "The Beautiful Fountain" was, indeed, beautiful, although devoid of any water. Oh, well, we still enjoyed examining the fountain's details & taking pictures....

Then the rest of the square was pleasant for strolling & a snack on a sunny spring day.
