Take a tour of Schönen Brunnen in Nürnberg, Germany – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
Jutting upwards like a gothic tower, Schoenen Brunnen “The Beautiful Fountain” is located in Nuremberg's central marketplace.
The 14th century Schoenen Brunnen is an exquisite architectural work which is calculated to be 19 meters in height.
Forty heroic, philosophic, political, artistic, evangelic and prophetic figures adorn the three narrowing steps of the fountain's exterior.
The Gold ring fitted into the ironwork is the foundation of numerous legends.
Many couples journey to the fountain to spin the gold ring as a ritual, hoping that the stork will grant them a child in the near future.
The Beautiful Fountain has experienced many restoration efforts; fragments of the original fountain can be found in the Germanischos National Museum.
