Fountain at the Alexandrinum (Brunnen am Alexandrinum)

Short facts

  • Coburg
  • Sights
Many generations of students have refreshed themselves or splashed themselves with water in the fountain at the Alexandrinum, because it is located in the schoolyard of the Gymnasium and is also used for walks during breaks. The school, which was founded in 1852 by Caroline Stößel from Coburg as a „higher educational institution for girls", moved to a new building on Seidmannsdorfer Straße in 1955 after many moves. It is unknown when the fountain was erected as an ornament to the schoolyard. It consists of a stone vase with a metal lid in the middle from which water gushes. The water flows over the vase into a shallow, polygonal stone basin.
