The Zähringer city, Neuenburg am Rhein, a free Reichstadt founded in 1175 by Herzog Berthold IV of Zähringen, held a very important political meaning for Europe in the Middle Ages. Through the ages, fountains have served as a vital centre point for cities and towns. The water fountains were thought of as a symbol of the happiness and joy of the town's inhabitants. The central role of water in ensuring life and happiness gave the fountains in the cities of the Middle Ages an important social task. Fountains are a central point of daily life and a favorite meeting place. Besides their practical meaning, fountains have also inspired a number of artists. In today's cities, fountains mean "urban-life-quality" Fountains are creative objects and give the city a distinctive identity.
