For decades one argues over the actual source of the Werra. Not far from the Bleßberg near Siegmundsburg, at the junction of the Thuringian Forest and the Thuringian Slate Mountains, the second branch of the Werra springs. Locals speak of the "real" and the "wrong" source of Werra. Even today, many a battle between Fehrenbachern and Siegmundsburgern is performed. Several investigations and opinions were commissioned due to the disputes. However, these could not bring about a clear clarification. For these reasons, the length of the Werra in various reference books is also given as 298 or 292 kilometers.
