  • The fountain is dedicated to the founder of the city - an event that took place after a bear hunt. The fountain itself is one of the 12 fountains from the Station to Bear Pit.

  • 16th century fountain with colorful armored statue of a bear in honor of Berchtold von Zähringer, founder of Bern. The bear is supposed to represent the bear Zähringer shot, giving the name to the city.
  • Intriguing and a landmark full of history for everyone visiting this UNESCO World Heritage site of Bern. One of the most impressive Memorial Fountain in the Old City of Bern. Can't miss this historic fountain as you explore the old part of this city. It is dedicated to Berchtold von Zähringer the founder of Bern. It has a very interesting information especially the base of the fountain with the dates when the entire basin was replaced. The figure of the armored bear is also tied in with the founder and the city. I loved it.
