Semicircular wall fountain of Franconian shell limestone, with in the center a bronze, formerly gilded boy figure on a high pedestal in a 3.20 meter high niche. The boy holds in each hand a fish from whose mouths gushing water.
The bronze boy was probably melted in 1944 and in 1952 was the complete fountain demolished. Partly with the original stones, the fountain was re-erected in 1998 with a new boy made by sculptors Gerhard Olbrich and Thomas Schmalz.
