    In front of the town hall is the so-called four-tube fountain from the middle of the 18th century. The central obelisk carries on its top a figure of Frankonia with Herzogshut, Sturmfahne and sword. It is a symbol and patron saint of the former Duchy of Franconia. The image program is supplemented by the personifications of the four cardinal virtues: the bravery with helmet and lion skin, the justice with the balance, the wisdom with book and finally the moderation that pours water from a pot into the goblet with wine.

    Above the fountain basin water-spouting dolphins protrude to four sides. In each case a cardinal virtue is figuratively embodied: bravery / strength (Fortitudo), wisdom (Prudentia), moderation (Temperantia) and justice (Justitia). Finally, the fountain rejuvenates to a wappengeschmückten obelisk, which concludes with the figure of Frankonia. The coat of arms at the Obelisk is from Adam Friedrich von Seinsheim.

    Located at the foot of the Old Main Bridge, the four-tube fountain opposite the town hall is the ideal starting point for a city tour.

    Beautiful photo subject - but not all tubes carry water!

    The Vierröhrenbrunnen at the Grafeneckart is one of the most famous fountains in Würzburg. The design is typical of the late Baroque period.

    From Vierröhrenbrunnen you can reach all attractions in Würzburg very quickly. Right on the old Main Bridge, people are always enjoying themselves here, eating ice cream and drinking their wine on the old Main Bridge. Almost like in paradise.

    Initially there was a simple draw well, which had to give way to a run-well later. For representative reasons, the four-tube fountain was built in the middle of the 18th century. It is located near the Town Hall and the Old Main Bridge and is a popular meeting place.

    Very nice, well worth seeing. That was more or less the first view of the Würzburg old town, after we came from the underground car park. : D
