    Covered well at Sauerbornbach, which flows a few meters into the Werkersbach.
    A narrow, slippery staircase leads down to the visibly ferruginous water that has been used as healing water since the mid-18th century. The masonry surround dates from this period. A roofing was built in 1930 by the Reich Labor Service (RAD), who had his camp about 6 km further along the Wispertalsteig: komoot.de/highlight/429885
    Signs today warn against the use of water.
    Seating in front, one with a table.

    In the Werkerbrunnen in Sauerbornbachtal the iron-containing water was sold in clay bottles as early as the 18th century.
    Small signs everywhere warn of CO2 emissions in the well system. So one should be careful when going down the stairs to the fountain.
    The well house is very well ventilated, you should be careful when you lean over the two well basins. If you look closely, you can see the CO2 escape (bubble formation).

    If you walk the Wispertalsteig counter-clockwise, you should take another deep breath at the Werkerbrunnen, because this is followed by the steepest ascent of the climb.

    The renovation of the Werkerbrunens is funded by the European Landscape Fund and co-financed by the State of Hesse

    The Wispertalsteig circumnavigates the Höhenluftkurort in a large arc with several loops. Deeply cut valleys, enchanted forests, disused slate tunnels and fascinating long-distance views ensure a change of pace. If you want, you can break off the tour on the Mehrholzer Höhe halfway and sneak back to the village.
    The entire route is well signposted and is at a length of 15.5km which is easily feasible in about hours! Who thinks on the Mehrholzer height to the way back puts about 7.5 km total back!
    Can be parked in town! There is an extra parking space directly at the track!

    Nice place to rest before it goes steeply right behind the fountain again.
