    The Irmgardisbrunnen (Irmgardis-Pöttsche) with a gate that was forged in 1948 can also be visited on the southern slope in the area of the chapel. The symbols cross, heart and anchor shown represent the divine virtues of faith, love and hope. This is where the Irmgardis spring rises, which dried up over time. Since around 1970 the water supply has been artificially ensured from the public network during the frost-free period.

    The water from the original spring was considered to be medicinal and was used for fracture disorders or fever. The blessing of God for marriage was also transmitted with the water and whoever wanted to conceive a child, according to tradition, threw a piece of gold or a sugar cube into the spring pool - if it was a girl, a piece of gingerbread in the spring pool was helpful.
