Like most medieval market square in the center of historic town in European cities, there are water fountains in the Römer Square. In fact, there are two rather large scale water fountains in the Römer, not one. They are the fountain of Justice and the Minervabrunnen. The Fountain of Justice is named as such because the goddess of Justitia (lady of justice in Roman mythology) is placed on top of the fountain. The Fountain of Justice was built in the 16th century. While the Minervanrunnen is placed at on side of the market square, the Fountain of Justice is placed near the center of the square as if Justitia is the main figure of the square.
