You can clearly see that we are dealing with a particularly high iron content here at Steinborner Drees. The water sprays up a glass column and flows out through a tap, forming rusty-red deposits. A pavilion covers the fountain and a poem has been attached to its facade:

Someone come and drink with me.
Do you think he thanks for that?
But I just bubble and jump like that
and remain happy with giving and jumping.
My life is so beautiful and simple
Always just give.
