The red sandstone fountain was given by Pastor Gottlob Weber to the Philippine government on December 30, 1964, as a symbol of Filipino-German friendship.

After several years, the drinking fountain was renovated by the Order of the Knights of Rizal with the leadership of its former commander Sir Hans G. Schoof. The fountain was re-inaugurated by former President Fidel V. Ramos during the 98th death anniversary of Dr. Jose Rizal on December 30, 1994.
