The modern fountain stands in the Untere Anlage in front of the Albertinum grammar school.
It was inaugurated as part of the school's extension in 1985 and erected to enhance the new school entrance. Inspired by the musically oriented grammar school, the Coburg sculptor Egon Ruggaber designed the Musenbrunnen. The nine mushroom-shaped gargoyles vary in material and symbolise the nine goddesses of the muses. A shallow, round water basin is arranged around the mushrooms and bordered by a stone bench. Two steps and three openings in the bench make it possible to enter the fountain and linger on the bench.
