The Feldbergbrunnen

Saturday (14th June, 2014) saw the dedication of the new Feldberg Fountain (“Feldbergbrunnen”) take place in the grounds of the Hohe Mark clinic.

The ceremony saw the fountain queen, Carolyn II., pour a small amount of cider over the fountain.

The fountain is made from a piece of Taunus Quartzite that came from a quarry in Mammolshain, part of Königstein.  Not only was the stone cut in half to make the fountain, but 50cm of it is actually below ground.
