Fountain in the Little Rose Garden (Brunnen im Kleinen Rosengarten)

Short facts

  • Coburg
  • Sights
The fountain stands against a quarry stone wall that separates the Little Rose Garden from the actual Court Garden. Around 1680, the fountain was installed in the princely pleasure garden, later to become the Court Garden, which was newly laid out under Duke Albrecht. It is the only remaining Coburg ornamental fountain from this period. The stone fountain has a semicircular water bowl. Above it is a relief. It shows a boy boldly pulling the beard of a water god, who then - frowning - spouts water. In the meantime, the fountain serves exclusively as an ornament for the idyllic, adjoining garden; it has not been providing water for a long time.
