    Maybe not as spectacular as you would imagine, but overall a very nice place. The spring is nicely composed with picnic tables above. Due to the location at the parking lot, the source is easy to reach. Unfortunately, some of the information boards are no longer as easy to read, but you can read the most important information.

    Rest area with tables and benches. Right on the parking lot, therefore mostly animated.

    Beautifully framed source. Unfortunately no drinking water; probably because of the road above.

    The Fulda is the river with the greatest flow length within Hesse. The source should not be missed when hiking in the area

    That this meager trickle should become a stately river? Wikipedia says that this is not the real Fulda spring: "This is much higher, almost below the summit. When the construction began over 80 years ago, it was enclosed and used to supply the buildings with drinking water The overflow was led by a pipeline to the point that is now given as the Fulda spring.

    A good start into the hike around the Wasserkuppe is the Fulda spring. It rises near the trail parking lot at the Wasserkuppe

    The Fulda, also called Gersfelder Wasser in the upper reaches, is the 220.4 km long left source river of the Weser. It rises in the Hessian part of the Rhön at the Wasserkuppe and ends between the Kaufunger Wald and Reinhardswald in the three-river town of Hann. Münden (Lower Saxony), where it unites with the Werra coming from the right to the Weser.

    Not exactly a cozy place, but this is where the Fulda rises.

    Always atmospheric to contemplate the water at the beginning of its long journey to the sea.

    From the Wasserkuppe to Hann. Gemünden, the Fulda paves its way. In the three rivers city it unites to form the Weser.

    Everything has to start small - this also applies to the Fulda and its considerable path to the confluence with the Werra, which comes from Thuringia, and then flows from Hannoversch Münden as the Weser towards Bremen and the North Sea.

    The source and the first "flowing meters" on the slope of the Wasserkuppe form a beautiful natural spectacle
