Üdersdorfer Drees

Üdersdorfer Drees 

Older citizens say that Üdersdorfer Drees was caught before World War II. Many remember that as children they drew mineral water there so that they could bake pancakes made of buckwheat - in dialect “Heedeleschkoochen” - at home. The carbon dioxide-containing mineral water ensured that the dough was light. The water was also often drunk as a refreshing drink when harvesting hay.
