    Here springs the Düssel, which is about 46 kilometers long and has given the state capital your name. The source is tucked away on a farm

    The source is located right next to the first house on private land, so please behave accordingly. The pump runs only Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 10-18 clock.
    If you think you can fill your drinking bottle with fresh spring water here, you will be disappointed. It is not drinking water! It is a symbolic spring fed by a garden hose.

    The Düssel forms from four to eight spring waters. The highest of the sources, the actual Düssel, is located in Wülfrath near Gut Blomtrath on the city limits to Neviges. From here, the Düssel River flows through the Wülfrath hamlets of Schlupkothen, Aprath and Düssel past the former Aprath Castle and the Aprather Mühle before passing through Hahnenfurth and Schöller Wuppertal and continuing on the territory of the city of Haan. Here it unites in the center of Gruiten village with the small Düssel, a tributary, which is 4.3 km long and east rises in the district Bolthausen in Wuppertal district Vohwinkel. Source: Wikipedia

    The Düssel is a 40 km long right tributary of the Rhine in North Rhine-Westphalia. It rises in Wülfrath-Blomrath on the city limits to Velbert-Neviges in the district Mettmann. After passing through the cities of Wülfrath, Wuppertal, Mettmann, Haan and Erkrath, it flows four-armed into the Rhine in the city of Düsseldorf. The Düssel is the namesake for the Wülfrather district Düssel and the local house Düssel, the city of Dusseldorf and its district Düsseltal.
    The name Düssel probably goes back to the Germanic thusila and means "rush, rush, roar", Old High German doson. Around 1065, the brook is referred to as a tussle (the effervescent, rushing, roaring).
    Spatial structure of the course
    According to the Handbook of the Spatial Division of Germany, the Düssel traverses several natural-spatial units in its course. The source area lies in the Düsselhügelland (3371.18), the upper reaches briefly touches the Dornaper Kalkgebiet (3371.16) and the middle course with the Neandertal passes through the Mettmanner Lößterrassen (3371.00). It follows at Alt-Erkrath a short section through the natural area Düsseltalmündung (550.13). The estuary is located in the Düsseldorf-Duisburg Rhine plain (575.30). Source: Wikipedia

    The so-called source is a fat fake!
    The Düssel has no conventional source, it consists of 8 inlets of streams that disappear in the limestone and as a brook, the Düssel, come back to the light! Away from the "fake" source!

    a bit smaller than expected, but a funny stopover

    One more, thanks to the "thumbs down guy", the "weak-o-mat" can either not read (the information is not from me, but from Wikipedia), or he is just a total "stupid nut"!
