    The Schwalheimer wheel was part of the so-called water art of Bad Nauheim, which, in addition to wind art (originally consisting of two windmills), served to pump the brine onto the graduation buildings. However, since the driving river Wetter was a little away from the graduation buildings, a wooden frame almost a kilometer long including a deflection joint was built to operate the pumps at the graduation tower. About 200 meters of it are still preserved today and testify to the enormous technical effort involved in extracting salt from the Bad Nauheim brine at the time.

    As another preserved part of the water art, the water wheel at Ludwigsbrunnen in nearby Bad Nauheim is recommended for a visit. The neighboring graduation building was also the end point of the linkage connected to the Schwalheimer wheel.
