At the centre of the square "Altstadtmarkt" there is the lead Maria fountain dating back to 1408 – a unique documentation of late gothic artistic handwork. It is decorated with biblical, imperial and town history motifs. After being largely destroyed in the Second World War, the fountain which now stands at the Altstadtmarkt is a reconstruction from 1988 and the remains of the original can be seen in the Altstadtrathaus building.
