Fountain in the Anna-B.-Eckstein-Anlage

Short facts

  • Coburg
  • Sights
The Anna-B.-Eckstein-Anlage is a small, hidden park and seems more like a kind of leafy passageway between Walkmühlgasse and Mohrenstraße. There is also the fountain that was erected in honour of the Coburg teacher and pacifist Anna Bernhardine Eckstein (1868-1947). She lived in the USA for a long time and made a name for herself there as a champion of world peace. She was even considered for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1913. In 1919, she published the book "State Protection Treaty for Securing World Peace". In Coburg, a primary school is also named after her. The fountain, created by the sculptor Egon Ruggaber, a son of the town, consists of a round stone column with a water basin in the middle, from which water flows down to the ground on four sides.
