Alexandrinen Fountain (Alexandrinenbrunnen)

Short facts

  • Sights
The Alexandrine Fountain (Alexandrinenbrunnen) commemorates the former Ernst-Alexandrinen-Volksbad, an Art Nouveau building that was partially removed in 1977. The associated Alexandrine Fountain is located in the Alfred-Sauerteig-Anlage next to the remaining portico building. It was inaugurated in 1908 in memory of Duchess Alexandrine, wife of Duke Ernst II. Alexandrine had bequeathed 120,000 marks to the city of Coburg for the completed construction of the public baths. The design of the complex, originally located next to the entrance to the baths, was by Coburg's master builder Max Böhme. After the demolition of the Volksbad, the fountain was moved to the boundary of the Rückert School in 1978 as part of the redesign of the park. The ornamental fountain consists of a four-columned, richly ornamented natural stone wall with the coat of arms of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha adorning the gable in the centre and the bust of Duchess Alexandrine below.
