The Neptune Fountain is part of the enclosure wall of the former courtyard waterworks. An information panel quoted from the city archives volume (see literature) and reports that the well since 2004 donated drinking water.As part of an extensive garden planned by Friedrich Weinbrenner on behalf of Hereditary Prince Karl Ludwig, the Neptune Fountain was created in 1801 and was the center of an underground grotto that connected the royal gardens under the Erbprinzenstraße. The grotto had to give way during the construction of the natural history museum on Friedrichsplatz. The gargoyle was moved in 1866 to the yard waterworks.In 2004 he was renovated on behalf of the municipal utilities. Stadtwerke Karlsruhe GmbH owns and operates this well itself.(Https://ka.stadtwiki.net/Neptunbrunnen)
