A short walk from the cathedral along the Komödienstrasse leads to the famous Römerbrunnen, which is next to the Burgmauer (ancient city wall). Franz Brantzky built the fountain in 1915; it was heavily damaged during World War II and then restored in 1955. Perched upon a column is the she-wolf who, according to legend, suckled Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome.
