    Great fountain with many details. This fountain has two forerunners, which are reflected in its current form.The illustrated fish sculptures represent in a mischievous way character traits of the Geislinger citizenship and here native displaced persons from South Moravia and the Giant Mountains. The elephants go back to the arms of the Counts of Helfenstein, the founders of the city.The theme of the trout well refers to the famous poem "The Trout" by Christian Friedrich Daniel Schubart, who lived in Geislingen from 1763-1769. This poem was written in 1782 and was set to music by Schubart himself as a simple piano song. A generation later, the composer Franz Schubert also wrote a melody for it, which he then also used as a theme in the variation movement of his quintet op.114. This work was therefore nicknamed "Trout Quintet".
