Angel Well, one of the landmarks in Wertheim.

Angel Well

Angel Well was created by the master builder Michael Matzer and the sculptor Mathes Vogel in 1574 to serve the town. The two angels perched on the peak of the well’s structure holding the Wertheim County coat of arms gave the well its name. The assignment of the secular figures (mayor, councillor, master builder, artist) to the known planets and their zodiac signs (Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus and Mercury) is particularly interesting.
