  • The second of 12 old drinking wells on the way between the station and the bear pit on the walk through the old town.
  • 16th century fountain with colorful statue of a woman on top, pouring water into a bowl. Most likely symbolizes the primary value of moderation. Only later was the fountain attributed to Anna Seiler, that opened a hospital in Bern in 1354 .
