The Wolfsbrunnen is a historic fountain in Heidelberg-Schlierbach. It is a listed building.In a source-rich, from below the Felsenmeeres on Königstuhl steeply north to the Neckar and the then fishing village Schlierbach sloping valley left around 1550 Elector Friedrich II build a pleasure house with fountains and water features. Three fish ponds were once there, which are still partially visible today. The valley of the Schlierbach, which is located about two kilometers east of the Heidelberg Castle, was reached from here via an old mountain trail, today's Schloss Wolfsbrunnenweg. The name of the fountain probably comes from the Elector Wolfskreiser, who drove out wolves and caught.Several sources around the Wolfsbrunnen - z. B. the "Felsenmeerquelle" - are still used today for drinking water. The lake below the restaurant goes back to the top of the former fishponds.
