The beautiful fountain is located on the Marktplatz in front of the Marien Apotheke and has a colorful statue of St. George slaying the dragon on top of a colorful artistic column. Worth a short stop for photos.

Georgsbrunnen is one of so many fountains that we've visited with water. It is not a big fountain. Located on the market place. It has beautiful relief on the fountain wall. Always very crowded here.

Georgsbrunnen was a fountain located at the Marktplatz of Rothenburg. It was built for over 400 years with a statue at the center. Being a landmark of the place, nearly all visitors come to take photos with it during their travel in Rothenburg.

Everywhere you look with Rothenburg old town there is something to see and notice. A lovely statue on top of one of the numerous wells within this old town. Located right in the centre of the old town at Marktplatz
