The Arthur Menge Fountain is a listed fountain in the southern part of Hanover, Germany. The facility in the green area on Vierthalerweg was built on a small bastion near the Döhrener Turm, which is now embedded in the green strip, which is closed to motor vehicles and only crossed by cycle paths and footpaths, which connects the Maschsee with the southern Eilenriede. It was the last work of the then 90-year-old sculptor Ludwig Vierthaler and dates from 1964, 1965 or 1966. It was built in honour of Hanover's Lord Mayor Arthur Menge (1884–1965) as a gift from the Fritz Behrens Foundation to the citizens of the capital of Lower Saxony.
