One of many beautiful and historical statues and fountains in Bern. This Zahringerbrunnen is close to the Zytglogge clock with the beautiful bear display, so you can't really miss it as a landmark. Bern has some incredibly detailed landmarks, take time to walk down the road and inspect all of them. The recurring bear theme is awesome.
Very close to the Zytlogge, it is one of the many fountains on that street. Check 'em all out!
