Fischmarktbrunnen


"The Most Beautiful Fountain in Basel"

The Fischmarktbrunnen, built towards the end of the 14th Century, was quickly heralded as the most beautiful fountain in Northern Europe. The fountain is dodecagonal, with a Gothic centrepiece, the original of which can now be found in the Historical Museum. Above the four solid gargoyles, stand angels either with musical instruments or weapons. The large figure represent Peter, Mary, and John. The other smaller figures are other saints and prophets. The traffic which flies around the fountain is a slight distraction, so may want to visit when it is a bit quieter on a Sunday afternoon, for example.
