Historic fountain was in the center square .. is hard to miss .. and worth a look. it's smallish and a good point of reference to meet up with your group. We were in a group around 40 people .. a Globus tour.

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

This 400 year old, 8 meter deep fountain contains 100,000 liters of water. It sits outside the Meat and Dance Hall in the Market Square. Another great photo in this great square. The artwork is fantastic.
