The river Lamitz rises near Kirchenlamitz and flows into the Saxon Saale near Fattigau. The Lamitzbrunnen, also known as the Lamitz spring, is located at 793 m above the Klein Waldstein in a landscape conservation area. The source, captured by the FGV Kirchenlamitz in 1929, is considered a natural monument. The first tributary flows right behind the source.
Ideal resting place at the Jean Paul fountain with benches and a wooden deckchair.
The Jean Paul fountain is, as you can see from the reddish color of the water, a slightly radioactive iron sorrel. It is already described in 1792 by the electoral mountain and Münzrat Mathias Flurl as "vitriolsauere source". The bishop green pastor Johann Heinrich Scherber reports in 1811 that the forest people knew of a sour well, there was already a source version, which was "but so far with a special consideration was not further treated". Because of its natural radioactivity, at the beginning of the century an English company wanted to buy the area and build a spa there on a grand scale. The buyer's request, however, was rejected by the then Bavarian State Ministry.
The origin of Naab (Fichtelnaab) lies at the south and southeastern foot of the Ochsenkopf, where numerous rivulets merge and unite with the captured Naabquelle. The Fichtelnaabquelle lies at 867 meters above sea level in the Hochwald forest. With the inlets of the Waldnaab from the Upper Palatinate Forest and the Heidenaab, coming from the Steinwald, the Naab forms the central gully of the Upper Palatinate to the Danube.
