Mountain Biking Highlight
Actually, this fountain is called Johann-Daum-Brunnen and stands directly on the market square in the center of Heiligenstadt. Around Easter, the fountain is beautifully decorated. This custom goes back to the 50s - and made the fountain the landmark of the place. The Easter decoration takes place in many towns and villages in Franconian Switzerland. The main reason is the importance of water as a life-giving element. The fountains used to be the center of many places. The water dispensers have always been kept very clean and well maintained. The importance of the wells has been linked to the water scarcity of the area, which is why the wells have always been an important part of the villages.
Small tip: If you continue to roll through the city, you will find more Easter wells. For example, at the Tabea care center or the small snail well at the southern entrance to the village.
