As you move down from the Schonbrunn Hill, at the centre of the intersection of the avenues from the west and east can be seen a round pool with a fountain at it's centre. This is a Naiad Fountain. Naiads were followers of Neptune and were nymphs of springs and streams. The statue in the Round Pool represents a naiad playing with a waterbird.
The pool has a number of ducks that seem to be residents of the pool. Around the edges, you can spot lotus flowers growing.
