    Pfaff fountainOn the northern slope of the Letzberg, which is called Pfaffenberg, there is the with 387 meters
    highest located fountain in the city.
    The Pfaffenbrunnen belonged to Friedrich I, Barbarossa, since the end of the 12th century.
    built Premonstratensian Canonia of the "White Order". The name of the well is only up
    Emerged in the early 16th century, when the monastery was converted into a secular monastery;
    their occupants became world clerics, so-called "priests". The fountain served until 1935 the
    Water supply of the Bremerhof. 1984/87, the source was redesigned. The water flows over
    57 Buntsandsteinblöcke in cascades down the slope and seeped in the valley floor.
    The Pfaffenbrunnen has strong differences in bedding. Dry in many dry years
    the source whole (episodic bed). This is because the retention in high
    Mountain slopes, due to the low geological layer deposition, is low. Above the
    Exit point of the Pfaffenbrunnen are only about 15 m of rock material up to the highest elevation
    in the neighborhood. In addition, the catchment area, i. the area from which the water is underground
    can flow together, due to the terrain (strong relief) very small.
    Finally, the precipitation sum (~ 800mm / a), the precipitation variability and the
    Vegetation on the ground plays a role. In spring, the trees, shrubs and herbs start again
    to grow. For this they consume a very large amount over the summer until the fall
    Rainwater that they get from the ground.
