    The Klaus fountain was a fountain room at the foot of the valley slope on the edge of the floodplain of the Kallmuther stream. It was part of the Eifel aqueduct that supplied ancient Cologne with drinking water.

    The Brunnenstube was built towards the end of the 1st century AD and is part of the »Roman water pipe«, which supplied the Romans in old Colonia (Cologne) with around 20,000 cubic meters of Eifel water a day. The water pipeline, which is over 90 kilometers long and begins with the "Grüner Pütz" fountain near Nettersheim, is considered one of the most outstanding technical masterpieces of the Romans north of the Alps. The underground water pipe in the Brunnenstube in Kallmuth received another inflow. (Source: eiserfey.de)
