    The «Lange Wand», consisting of the grading buildings IV and V with the tower in the middle, is one of the landmarks of Bad Nauheim. The tower belonged to a windmill, whose task was to set in motion by means of a mechanical gear pump, which transported the saline mineral water from the springs to the grading constructions. The slow trickling over piled blackthorn branches led to a higher concentration of brine. The graded brine was then pumped to boiling houses and heated there in boiling pans until the salt crystallized out.

    It definitely pays to slow down and take a deep breath. Again, this is a piece of simple but cool engineering. Very lovingly kept in good shape.

    ... visually impressive, good for the lungs and historically interesting. After all, salt was won in the past.

    ... impressive industrial monument. This is how salt was formerly extracted.

    Great former salt mine! Still "breathtaking" today! Nonsense ... on the contrary: Great for pollen allergy sufferers and asthmatics 👍👍👍

    The graduation works in Bad Nauheim are great, one must have seen. A marvel of old architecture the craftsmen in the past had really something on the box.
