Schulldrees Nomen est omen

Schulldrees used to be directly opposite the Neichen elementary school. For people in town, this Drees was always just the school Drees. This name has remained with Neichen Drees to this day.

In 1960, the source of the Neichen Drees was opened up with a 110 meter deep borehole in order to increase the fill. Today 1.2 liters flow out of the pipe per minute. After the required drinking water quality could not be achieved, the area was fenced off.

It wasn't until 1979 that the fountain was opened to the public again. It has been redesigned and attractively decorated. Today, a table with two benches invites you to take a break at the spring or to linger there for a short moment and enjoy the view.
