Long Description:
The center of Zurich - Lindenhof hill, houses a beautiful fountain. The so-called Lindenhof (Hedwig) fountain on Lindenhof hill in Zürich recalls the legend of the siege of Zurich (1292) by Duke Albrecht I. of Habsburg. The helmeted sculpture of the leader of the courageous Zurich women reminds us of this incident. The fountain was installed here in 1912 and the statue of woman-warrior was made by Gustav Siber.
