Sturm's Fountain (Sturmsbrunnen)

Short facts

  • Coburg
  • Sights

The Sturm's Fountain stands in the upper Ketschengasse on a plaza-like extension.

In 1618, the former Kastenbrunnen was erected as a wooden construction and after 1700 it was converted into a stone fountain. From the middle of the 19th century, the water fountain was called the Sturmsbrunnen, named after the innkeeper and brewer Anton Sturm, who ran an inn in the Ketschengasse. In 1899, the octagonal fountain was demolished because it obstructed the growing road traffic. A year later, a new fountain was built in almost the same place with an old column and a small round water basin. Above the well tube, three lion heads are depicted in the centre. A stone lion figure can be seen on the column. The fountain water is suitable for refreshment and drinking.
