Bürgerbrunnen (citizen font)
This font is placed on the place of the westphalic peace (Platz des westfälischen Friedens). It shows town history. On top of the font you see the emperor Friedrich !. Barabarossa von Hohenstaufen. He gave the important town rights to Osnabrück. The a bit strange looking lion (not in the photo)shall help to remember the duke Heinrich der Löwe (the Lion) who has had 1170-1180 the jurisdiction in Osnabrück for the bishop.
Above you can see also the dome, the churches St. Johann, St. Marie and St. Katharin, then some typical medieval buildings and the town wall with some towers. A lot of more details show parts of the history, a special part of it symbolizes the "black death" or pest. In the year 1350 Osnabrück suffered that horrible of the pest that as history tells only 7 married couples staid unseperated. In the year 1575 a second pest wave arrived in the city.
A lot of more details you will see when you visit the town.
