The natural mud bath was created from a pond, which was artificially created in 1855. In the 1960s, it was expanded as a bathing pond and now maintained by volunteer and community.
Swimmers (1.5 to 3.5 meters water depth), non-swimmers area and a children's pool (30 centimeters water depth). The water is heavily interspersed with suspended matter from the moor. A basin with a natural moor area for moor bathing is located at the edge of the forest.
Sanitary facilities with cold water showers, a large children's playground and the sunbathing area complete the complex. Admission is free. A parking lot is located on the street Geiersberg / Grassemann.
