Right on the Kramgasse, this is a fascinating fountain. One wonder what was the purpose of creating some figures on the fountains. But they are good to see.

Close to Zytglogge Tower is this delightful addition to the great streetscape. Constructed in 1535 its current name was adopted only in the 19th century.

At the apex is a helmeted bear bearing a shield and flag. At each side he has a sword. At his feet is a bear cub munching on grapes.

Next is a female figure wearing a crown. Then an ornate column, continuing till the water spouts.

They are all beautiful and interesting. In the early 90's, the sound of the water fountains in Bern remembered you how bored can be a traditional Swiss city on Sunday's afternoon. Today the activity have change and I cannot say if by nostalgy or by age, I miss now the old times where the only noise of the downtown was reduced to their water falling in those not too cold days

The fountain is dedicated to the founder of the city - an event that took place after a bear hunt. The fountain itself is one of the 12 fountains from the Station to Bear Pit.

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.

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!).

The Zähringerbrunnen fountain built 1535 on the splendid street Kramgasse. The fine detail of the fountain is amazing with the backdrop of the Zytglogge Clock Tower. Kramgasse is a wonderful street line on both sides with beautiful old buildings with a mixture of retail, restaurants and embassies. It is also the location of the famous Einstein Cafe and the house where Einstein lived for some years in Bern. Kramgasse is a must visit for a nice casual stroll to absorb the rich history of the area.

A lovely fountain with a story to tell.
Old Bern is full of such pieces- so much Central European history.
Makes you wonder what it was really like as they were quite poor in the old days.

one of the fountains scattered in Old Town Bern each with its own character and charm - yes, the water is drinkable. We saw several people filling jugs and bottles and the final day we were in Bern, city workers were draining fountains and scrubbing them down
