With 60 liters per second, the source is thus the second source of water in Lower Saxony after the Rhumequelle in the Harz.
On a well-accessible spring pot you can see wonderfully how the water from below pushes out of the sandy ground, whirling up real sandy fountains and depositing reddish iron oxides and turquoise-colored manganese oxides.
The spring water has a constant temperature of about 9 degrees Celsius and never freezes even in winter. This is especially important for the local wildlife, which also finds reliable access to water in winter.
The source of sulfur has been protected since 1936.
