Behind the small wooden houses with beautiful New Year crafts hides one of the most famous sights of Nuremberg - the beautiful fountain. The Beautiful Fountain (Schönbrunnleitung) was built around 1388. Two springs fed it in Gleißhammer, far from Nurnberg. The pipe was originally made of wood, was later partially replaced by lead and was in use as one of the oldest utility water pipes in Nuremberg until the 20th century. An ancient local tradition tells that if you twirl the ring in the fence, then the wishes will come true. A young apprentice mounted this ring in a fence that was made by a master. He wanted to prove his skills and get married to the daughter of the master. But, the master turned out to be stupid and lost not only a good student but also a worthy son-in-law.
