This fountain, located in front of Artus Mansion, has been the landmark of Gdańsk ever since 1633.
Legend has it that it was Neptune himself who contributed to creating the famousGoldwasser liquor.
“Outraged at people throwing coins into the fountain, Neptune hit the water with the trident and broke the gold into fine dust that has adorned the splendid herb liquor ever since”.
Moreover, the figure of Neptune emphasises the connection of Gdańsk and the sea.
