This fountain is one of the more ornate ones in Basel. It is unfortunately located in a transit island, which takes away from some of its charm, but the details are really amazing to look at. Plus, it is right between Marktplatz and Schifflande, so...More

We saw dozens of fountains as we toured around Basel. This one is bigger than most. Many are tiny and tucked away in the side of buildings.

I'll not say you must be there while you visit Basel. We pass by it while walking around the city, took a picture, because it is cute, but that's it, nothing more.

Fischmarktbrunnen stands in a part of the old town in Basel and this old town is worth a visit, Take your time stroll along the narrow lanes and find tiny shops and cosy little Bars or Restaurants
