Vom Mineralwasser der Rablönch-Quelle gebildete Landschaft
The water of the Rablönch spring, which colours its watercourse orange, is caught in the meadow above.

Description

The mineral water gushes out of a simple pipe, flows shortly along the road into a shaft and finally comes out again on the other side of the road, where the water forms an interesting landscape.

The water in the Rablönch spring has an arsenic content that is just over the maximum permissible value for arsenic in drinking water that is in place today. Therefore, this water can no longer be officially provided as potable water. If you choose to drink it, you do so at your own responsibility.
