Location: city centre


Address: Stary Rynek


Opening hours: 1 - 1

Description:
Bamberg Girl's Fountain (known as Bamberka) is located in the Old Market area. It is closely associated with the 18th-century history of Poznan. It is then that poor Catholic farmers from the district of Bamberg (in Bavaria, Germany) were invited to come and settle in the villages deserted after the 1700-1721 Northern War and a plague. Those who came, called ''bambers'', quickly assimilated into the local community. The Bamberka drinking fountain, erected in 1915, was funded by the Goldenring merchant family specialising in the wine trade. It depicts a woman clad in traditional Bamberg clothes who is carrying two buckets full of wine on a pole across the shoulders. The Poznan Bambry Associaton still cultivates the traditions of the Bambergers.
