The Postplatz fountain in winter

The Postplatzbrunnen is a fountain in Stuttgart .

The fountain in Alte Poststrasse at the corner of Rotebühlplatz and Calwer Strasse was designed by Nikolaus Friedrich von Thouret and installed in 1820. In the polygonal cast iron fountain trough stands a granite column that shows the head of King Wilhelm I above the year MDCCCXX on one side , and on the opposite side the relief of a mare, which is part of the city's coat of arms. It is crowned by a kind of pine cone. The column stands on the well box, around which four fish or dolphin figures are grouped, the water flowing out of their mouths. The well is in operation from May to September and is fed with tap water.
