Mineral, carbonated and iron-rich water flows in the Demerather Drees. Unfortunately, it does not have drinking water quality. The place in the forest where the fountain is located is a leisure spot on the Vulcano Trail. Therefore it is perfect for pausing and resting. Refresh yourself and let your inner gaze wander into the land of maars and volcanoes. A richly illustrated blackboard tells you the history of the Drees.
