Wallenborner DreesIt's finally bubbling again

For many decades, a well-used sour fountain supplied the people of Wallenborn with fresh spring water. Unfortunately, almost 20 years ago, the Drees was so damaged during renovation work that its water was no longer drinkable. He only lived a sad shadowy existence until Wallenborn put an end to it.

Strong pensioners took pity and took action. Since the place is rich in carbonated springs, they first renovated the Felddrees on the outskirts of the town - as a kind of dress rehearsal - which has since then offered refreshment especially to hikers and tourists. However, the restoration of the old Sauerbrunnen turned out to be a little more complex than initially planned.

Reward of the effort

It took many attempts and half a year to locate and redefine the original source from the numerous bubbling rivulets. The reward for the effort is the Wallenborner Drees, which is now bubbling in new splendor and is now being used extensively again - especially by the children of the village.
