Who pulled the plug?
This is one of my favourite fountains in Berne. There are many others, and you can drink from all of them, the water is very clean. Most town fountains have columns in the middle of their basins, with statues atop the columns. There is a string of them in a relatively straight line connected by an age-old underground stream running down the middle of the main street through the town (can be seen here covered by a grille). This particular spouter is by the university library in the town centre, at the head Münstergasse. I've got this photo of it full, very classy.
