The bear fountain is a helmeted black bear with a banner and shield with a cup devoting grapes at its feet. Fabulous stone fountain from the 16th century. more »
The Zahringerbrunnen is a fine example of the many functional street fountains with center statue-art. They offer fresh drinking water (at least all utilized as such and we had no ill effects!). more »
One of many beautiful and historical statues and fountains in Bern. This Zahringerbrunnen is close to the Zytglogge clock with the beautiful bear display, so you can't really miss it as a landmark. Bern has some incredibly detailed landmarks, take time to walk down the road and inspect all of them. The recurring bear theme is awesome.
Very close to the Zytlogge, it is one of the many fountains on that street. Check 'em all out!
