“I, Hanns Prasser
Do love wine more than water
Would I thirst for water, not wine
Much more wealth could I call mine.”
The Wrought Iron Well, its charm enhanced by the Renaissance-style pergola perched on it as a crown, is one of the most significant examples of wrought iron work in Styria.
It has been a landmark of prominence on the main square of the city since the beginning of the 17th century. An inscription on the well notes that it was erected in 1626.
