The Hedwig Fountain (German: Hedwigbrunnen) or Lindenhof Fountain is a fountain in the Lindenhof hill in Zürich, Switzerland, which was built in 1912. The helmeted statue of a woman beside the fountain was made by Gustav Siber. It was built to honor the Zürich women who defended the city by duping the army of Duke Albert I of Germany during the siege of Zürich in 1292. They dressed in full battle gear in order to trick the Habsburg army into thinking that the city was well protected while their men were busy campaigning at Winterthur.
