  • The fountain is located on the Munsterplatz in Cathedral square. It is in late Gothic style of the 15th century and its name (Fountain of the fish) is derived from its use that it was a time of conservation of fish. The architectural components are copies: the originals are kept in the Münsterbauhütte and in the Augustinian Museum. Octagonal fountain rises twice: at the bottom the statues of the patron saints of the city, while the top statues of the fathers of the Church.

  • The fish wells owes its name to the fact that in his well trough during market hours on the "big Gass' (today, Kaiser-Joseph-Straße) the live fish were kept and offered for sale. 1807 you replaced the fish fountain at its original site with the predecessor of the present-day Berthold wells and moved the fish wells to the Cathedral Street. In the 1930s he bothered but the traffic and built off the fountain, then in 1970 on the Münsterplatz to rebuild him. The oldest parts of the well date from the year 1486. Originally, the eight statuettes of Knights bearing the coat of arms and the Habsburg coat of arms include the early 17th Jh.an. These figures, as well as the trough of the fountain were replaced with copies in rebuilding.
