    Not many Vöslauer know the Turk fountain near Merkenstein, which was built just after 1800 (about the same time as the lookout tower in the Merkenstein zoo around 1811). In the course of the design of the large landscape park by the Dietrichstein. The name
    comes through the dome-like structure. A 61.5 m long arched corridor leads from the dome porch to the fountain room - to the source version. Today the water runs in a pipe underground to a small pond just below the Turkish fountain.

    20.01.2019 - A marked trail (blue-yellow-green) leads to the Türkenbrunnen in the grounds of the former Tiergarten Merkenstein. He is not a fountain the circular building with the 3 openings in the dome is more of a kind of waiting room, the Underground path leads to the actual spring chamber.
