A symbol of Gdańsk, the Neptune Fountain has stood in front of the Artus Court since 1633. It was built on the initiative of the mayor of Gdańsk, Bartłomiej Schachmann. The figure of Neptune refers to the bond between Gdańsk and the sea. The fountain was modeled by Peter Husen and Johann Rogge and cast in 1615 in Augsburg. 
The design of the whole fountain was created by Abraham van den Blocke. The exquisite grille surrounding the fountain dates back to 1634. In the years 1757—1761, Johann Karl Stender modified the basin and the pedestal of the fountain in the Rococo style by adding an extensive array of sea creatures. According to one of the Gdańsk legends, it was Neptune himself who contributed to the creation of the famous Gdańsk liqueur called Goldwasser. Indignant at people throwing golden coins into the fountain, he hit the water with his trident and the gold fell to bits, forming small golden flakes which now shine in the wonderful herbal liqueur.
