  • Fountain "represents" a marsh Sheep original construction dedicated to the ancient local traditions associated with the holiday, the Schueberfouer fair, which established another John the blind (who?) from the year 1340 24 August to hold 8-day fair. At the opening ceremony of the fair traditionally musicians attended, as well as a shepherd with sheep.

It is this action and depicts the fountain, where on 4 musician, surrounded by lots of sheep, and with two children under an umbrella (interesting, but in "those" years children walked under umbrellas?) melody March announce the start of the fair. If you encounter a fountain, look, we found it difficult.
