A stroll through the Coburg Court Garden reveals the generously designed Duke Alfred Fountain on the northern edge near Festungsstraße. On the initiative of his wife Marie, the city of Coburg planned the fountain instead of a pond in memory of Duke Alfred, who died in July 1900. It was erected three years later by master court mason Peter Renner. The two bronze dolphin sculptures are by Carl Oehrlein, the female bronze figure "Idylle" is the work of August Sommer and the male figure "Schreck" was created by the sculptor Christoph Franz Peter. A fountain is placed in the centre of the shallow water basin. A baroque ornamental lattice borders the fountain.
