    Great resting place with hut in a quiet place in the forest, beside the Einhardsquelle. A side trip, which is really worthwhile!

    If you dare, you can drink from the cup, the water is drinkable.

    The source of hardness is very old. Nobody knows exactly when it was caught.The source is named after Einhard, a Franconian lay abbot. This was the biographer of Charlemagne. Charlemagne received the in 815
    "Mark Michelstadt" as an imperial gift and had a basilica built in Steinbach (Einhardsbasilika).

    Rest and fill up the bottle. Perfect to stop for a moment.
