History / Description: The fountain has an octagonal trough. For the fountain column, the above is decorated with various patterns, projects a gargoyle.
Special: It is across the street from the imposing Spalentor, which belonged to the city walls of Basel 1400. At the front gate, it once had a drawbridge that crossed a ditch that is still present. Unfortunately, the area of the trench, about which a landscaped path leads, in recent decades - due to road construction - has become steadily smaller, but a piece has been preserved for posterity.
