    The Eder is almost 180 kilometers long tributary of the Fulda. Its source is a so-called slope debris source, from which on average 1.2 liters of water are released per minute. Shortly after the emergence of the Eder flows through the Ederbruch, a mainly with alders, moor birches and peat and white mosses overgrown moorland, where more small streams and rivulets are recorded. An ideal place for rest and relaxation!

    It is interesting that the sources of the 3 rivers Sieg, Eder and Lahn are so close to each other and that the rivers then do different "paths".

    Source Wikipedia:

    The Ederquelle is a hillside debris spring, which in the Rothaargebirge pours an average of around 1.2 liters per second. [2] From a geological point of view, it arises from the boundary layer between the deposited plateau clay and the Klafeld layers folded below. In the source area, a fen with a small peat thickness between 40 and 50 cm has formed.

    The spring water emerges from a small hole in the ground beneath a small natural stone, behind which there is a widely branched pipe system in which the water from the main spring collects. From there it flows through the Ederbruch spring moor in a northerly direction and after a few hundred meters takes up two more spring brooks from the Eder spring area - one on the left and one on the right - both of which have a significantly higher bed than the main brook. The Eder now leaves the Ederbruch as a brook around 50 cm wide.

    Yes, good for the dog when you need something refreshing.
    Otherwise an inconspicuous source as it has now been renatured.

    Fortunately, the spring area has been restored to its natural state, making it less impressive again. But that's the way it is.

    From the Erderquelle there is a great way to the center of the district of Siegen -Wittgenstein.

    The Ederquelle offers a good starting point for hikes - is reasonably easy to reach by car and there are some other highlights.
