Hygieia Fountain

The Hygieia Fountain (Hygieia-Brunnen) is a prominent landmark in Hamburg, located in the courtyard of the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce (Handelskammer Hamburg) building. This beautiful fountain, dedicated to the Greek goddess of health and hygiene, Hygieia, was erected in 1896 and serves as a symbol of public health and well-being. Designed by the renowned sculptor Hugo Lederer, the fountain features a central figure of Hygieia holding a serpent, representing healing and medicine. Surrounding Hygieia are four allegorical figures representing the elements of water, air, earth, and fire. The Hygieia Fountain is not only a testament to Hamburg’s rich history and culture but also a source of inspiration and admiration for locals and visitors alike.
