  • Kai

    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

    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 Kaufunger Wald and Reinhardswald in the three-river town of Hann. Münden (Lower Saxony), where it merges with the coming from the right Werra to the Weser.

    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.

    Maybe not quite as spectacular as you imagine, but overall a very nice place. The source is nicely set 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 so easy to read, but the most important information can be read.
