    Only 2 minutes by car from Gut Sassenscheid is the Johannisborn, the oldest cultural monument in the municipality of Nachrodt-Wiblingwerde, surrounded by the silence of the forest on the edge of the path. Already in pagan times the Johannisborn was considered a holy spring. In Christian times, the baptized were accepted into the church's covenant of grace. Many years later, the spring water from the Johannisborn was used as baptismal water for the Johanniskirche in Wiblingwerde. It was not until 1954 that the spring was set in rubble stones. The stone relief, which shows an early medieval baptism scene, was designed by Fritz Korte, the former headmaster of the Wiblingwerde primary school and a citizen of the community.
