This Wallace fountain served as the visitor's entrance to the French Ministry of Magic Headquarters. If a person stepped into the middle of the fountain and coughed, a lift that led down to the Ministry formed from the roots of the surrounding trees.
Behind the scenes
- In the real world, Wallace fountains were first made in 1872, around 80 years after the founding of the Ministry, suggesting that there may have been another entrance or a different Ministry location before, unless these fountains existed earlier in the Harry Potter universe.
