The fountain was placed in 1584 and finished in 1589. It shows the virtues love, faith, hope, bravery, patience and humility as female figures.

Tugendbrunnen ("Fountain of Virtues") is a fountain, located close to Lorenzkirche, done by local metal-founder Benedikt Wurzelbauer between 1584 and 1589.
It shows the Christian virtues of Love, Faith, Hope, Courage, Patience and Temperateness. Above all stands the sculpture of Justice, blindfold and with a sword and a balance, to mean it is the highest virtue.

The Tugendbrunnen ( Well of the virtues)
This well, to be found on the north side of the St. Lorenz church, is one of the city's main landmarks. The central column rises from an octagonal basin and is comprised of three sections and adorned with seven human figures. They are the seven virtues of the Middle Ages and recognizable by the attributes possessed by the women: Faith (cross), Love (children), Hope (anchor), Magnanimity ( lion), Moderation (jug and vessel) and Patience (lamb) as well as the crown of the spring's column showing Justice with her blindfolded eyes, scales and sword.
