A beautiful square with a grand looking church and the fountain with the special ‘ring’ to look for and run for luck. Tourist information centre is also located here so worth a visit to soak in the historic nature of Nuremberg and get information on where to go next. Lovely cobbled stone walkways leading to the church; also where the Christmas markets are located during the right season.

When in Nuernberg this should be on your to view list. The history of the fountain is very fascinating and the fact that it was not damaged through the major historic events makes it even more special. After the recent renovations according to online readings the fountain looks as good as new. You should stop by to spin the ring for good luck and fertility wishes. The location is very central among other interesting sites close by as well as the Christmas market being at the same place in winter.

Schöner Brunnen (english: beautiful fountain) is a 14th-century fountain located on Nuremberg's main market next to the town hall and is considered one of the main attractions of the city's Historical Mile. The fountain is approximately 19 meters high and has the shape of a Gothic spire. The fountain was built by Heinrich Beheim from 1385 to 1396. The 40 colorful figures that adorn the fountain represent the world view of the Holy Roman Empire. They are philosophy, the seven liberal arts, the four Evangelists, the four Church Fathers, the seven Prince-electors, the Nine Worthies, Moses and seven Prophets (Hosea, Daniel, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Amos, Isaiah and Joel). The two brass rings embedded in the fence surrounding the fountain on opposite sides are said to bring good luck to those who spin them.

A great landmark in Nuremburg, a great fountain which is quoted to bring good luck "GOOD LUCK IS BESTOWED UPON THOSE WHO TURN THE SCHÖNER BRUNNEN RING THREE TIMES"

Beautiful fountain in the central Hauptmarkt plaza, ornately decorated with golden linings. Ask locals for legends surrounding this magical monument.

It could have been a beautiful attraction if there are no beggars and drunk lying around. Too bad it was heavily fenced. You can’t take a beautiful photo.

Der imposante Brunnen am Marktplatz Nürnbergs ist definitiv sehenswert. Besonders am frühen Morgen, wenn hier noch nicht viel los ist, ist ein Besuch lohnenswert, denn gegen Mittag ist der Marktplatz dann schon recht voll und Touristen tummeln sich um den Brunnen.
