    Quote Wikipedia (that's probably why it's not advertised like that):
    In the 1920s, the harmful effects of radium were recognized when many of the dial painters in orange (New Jersey) known as Radium Girls developed cancerous tumors on the tongue and lips due to the radioactive radiation of the self-luminous dial paint, because they brushed their mouths with their brushes sharpened

    At the source is also Radiumquelle, no idea if that is also healthy. Here you can hold your legs for cooling in the stream and taste the water of the spring. A little tip: Only cold and fresh from the spring, at home it tasted like stale water from an old water pipe.

    The water tastes better than that of the spring in Gernrode.

    Here is a source of water and a stream. Many seating areas invite you to linger.

    nice rest area with Caciumquelle in the forest. The spring water has a very mineral taste

    In 1770 the calcium source was discovered in the tube base. It served as a healing water and elixir of life in the 19th century.

    Very nicely landscaped spring with a great covered resting place and stone table. Definitely worth a visit.
