Rückert fountain (Rückertbrunnen)

Short facts

  • Coburg
  • Sights
Where Rückertstraße meets Steingasse is the Rückert Fountain, directly opposite Ehrenburg Castle. It was built of wood in 1259. At that time it was called the monastery fountain, later it was temporarily called the castle fountain. After being repaired in 1550, the stone box and the fountain column that still exist today were rebuilt in 1680. The Rückertbrunnen was an important part of Coburg's water supply, as it distributed water via a pipe system to other fountains in the city. On its column in the centre is a sculpture depicting Coburg's patron saint, Saint Mauritius, facing the Morizkirche church.
