La ville est parsemée de splendides fontaines Renaissance, aux colonnes sculptées. La plus récente, la fontaine de Tinguely, est devenue un symbole du riche héritage artistique et culturel de la ville.
The Fountain of is located beside the Cathedral choir. It is first mentioned in records dating from 1394 as the fountain of the cattle market located in front of the former town hall, where it remained until 1840.
The St. George Fountain was erected in front of Fribourg's Town Hall between 1522 and 1524. It replaced a fountain that had probably supplied water for the Zaehringen Castle, which would explain the choice of the fountain's figure.
The St. Peter Fountain, found in front of the Civic Hospital, is the work of Stephan Amman (1592). Mentioned as "Bornel des Places", it was located on Georges Python Square up to the end of the nineteenth century.
The Fountain of Strength has never been removed from the charming triangular square at one end of the street called Court-Chemin, where it was originally placed. The statue is an allegory of the cardinal virtue of strength ("Fortitudo").
The Fountain of the Samaritan Woman is located on the street with the same name. Originally made of wood, it was restored between 1402 and 1404. In its present style, it is a typical Renaissance work (1550-1551).
The artist Jean Tinguely, born in Fribourg and honored citizen of the city, built in 1984 this memorial foutain to his friend and Formula I driver Seppi "Jo" Siffert, accidently killed in 1971 at Brands Hatch.
