Installed in a small park, the 18th century Bee Fountain comes from the Cistercian abbey of Neubourg, destroyed during the French Revolution. It was thus transferred to Haguenau in the 19th century, near the Saint-Georges church. This sandstone fountain has a four-lobed basin and a central upright on which four cherubs surround a beehive. This beehive symbolizes life in the monasteries, whose motto was “Ora et labore” – prayer and work.
