Stron spring

The water of the Stron spring was tapped and flowed into a separate basin at the fountain of the same name. Unfortunately, there has been no mineral water flowing anymore for some time now. In all probability it has found a new way (underground) and is therefore considered to have dried up.

Description

The Stron spring is a good example to see how sensitive the springs react and how well known springs can disappear. Conversely, it is also possible that a new spring may suddenly emerge.
