Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is located close to the Main river just after you cross the Alte Mainbrucke pedestrian Bridge. Very ornate and in a nice square.

This fountain is also known as the Four-Tube Fountain.

It is designed in Baroque style and is close to the Alte Mainbrücke or the Old Main Bridge and is a popular meeting place.

There are four water-spouting dolphins which tower over the fountain basin. The four virtues are Justice : woman with scales and fasces,Fortitude : woman with helmet., Temperance : woman filling a goblet with wine, and Prudence : woman with mirror and book.

This is a beautiful fountain located just in front of the Town Hall. Usually surrounded by those in search of a place to sit and some fresh air.

Worth a little look as part of your self-guided walking tour... not too far from the bridge and main shopping street.

We stopped at the Vierröhrenbrunnen or the Four-Tube Fountain at Grafeneckart. It is designed in the lines of the late Baroque period and is one of the most famous fountains in Würzburg.
By dint of its prime location, close to the Alte Mainbrücke or the Old Main Bridge, the Four-Tube Fountain has remained a popular landmark and meeting place for locals as well as tourists, even after the introduction of the pedestrian zone.
On each of the four sides of the fountain are four water-spouting dolphins which tower over the fountain basin.
An obelisk stands in a base and each corner of the base is decorated with an figurative statue of the four virtues :
Gerechtigkeit - Justice : woman with scales and fasces
Tapferheit - Fortitude : woman with helmet.
Mäßigkeit - Temperance : woman filling a goblet with wine
Weisheit - Prudence : woman with mirror and book.
The coat of arms on the obelisk is from prince-bishop Adam Frieidrich von Seinsheim
At the crest of the obelisk is the statue of Franconia with a duke's hat and the Frankish storm flag (Rennfähnlein).
I truly eye catching and magnificent fountain...

If my German serves me correctly, Vierrohrenbrunnen translates in English as four pipe fountain. In the old times fountains were very important as they provided water to citizens. Fountain has plenty of details to admire.

Near the old Main bride and in front of the Grafeneckart you will find a nice fountain with four tubes. At least since the Renaissance, possibly until the Middle Ages, there was a draw well at this place. During the installation of the aqueduct by Balthasar Neumann in 1733 the first public well was built. The design created Jakob van der Auwera with a fountain column the Schönborn lion sat on and the coat of arms of Prince bishop Friedrich Karl von Schönborn. The enlargement of the fountain went to the Auwera workshop in 1763. The further execution of the 1765/1766 completed fountain took over to Johann Peter Wagner. You will see over the fountain basin after four sides water-spitting dolphins. In each case a cardinal virtue is embodied. Finally, the fountain rejuvenates to a crested Obelisk, which concludes with the Frankonia. The coat of arms at the Obelisk is from Adam Friedrich von Seinsheim.

Vierrohrenbrunnen was a fountain at the center of Marktplatz in front of Town Hall. There was nothing special about it. However the statue in the middle of the fountain had certain historical implication on it.
