Famous Tyrolean sculptor Elmar Kopp worked on the design of the landmark. The opening of the fountain was a very symbolic and important event in the history of the town. Europabrunnen has six streams that symbolize six main municipalities of Europe, which merged in 1956. This is not the only gorgeous fountain in the town. The history of Marienbrunnen is no less interesting. Locals call this fountain “the well of Mary”. Marienbrunnen is located not far from an ancient church. It is believed that the first wooden well appeared yet in the 14th century on the site of the modern fountain. Later, the wooden well was replaced with a big stone well. Nowadays, it’s an incredibly attractive place with a beautiful fountain decorated with gorgeous sculptures. In accordance with an old charming legend, locals saw the image of Virgin Mary in the well several times. Therefore, it was believed that the water from the well had healing properties. Until 1876, the old well worked and provided locals with clean water. It’s a miracle that it has managed to survive through centuries and endure many tragic events in the history of the town.
