    The construction of the Sophienquelle near Grünsberg was commissioned in 1720 by the Nuremberg patrician Johann Paul Paumgartner for his wife Sophie. It consists of a generously designed spring enclosure with the semicircle of the fountain wall made of rhizome sandstone and the railing-free stairways on both sides. Originally, an elaborate Baluster column railing was attached to the fountain wall as a balustrade. Thus, the plant resembles an amphitheater and although it is referred to as a source, it is more like a well.

    Not only in the spring and summer months a highlight. Even now in late autumn or winter, this place has a powerful effect on the eye and the soul

    a great place to stay and take a break, watching fish in the pond. Crystal clear spring water.
