The Gänsemännchenbrunnen, or Goose Man fountain, was created around 1550 and is one of Nuremberg’s oldest fountains. It features a bronze figure of a farmer holding a goose under each arm, the water coming out of their beaks. Before 1945 the fountain was located in the goose market but it’s now in a courtyard behind the town hall.
