Long Description:
[DE] Die Wasserversorgung erfolgte früher durch Laufbrunnen, von denen eine Vielzahl gusseiserner Exemplare aus der Produktion heimischer Eisenhütten erhalten sind. Sie stammen meist aus der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts und sind oft mit Zierat, Reliefdarstellung und geschmückten Brunnenköpfen versehen.

[EN] In former times, such fountains were the water supply. Many of the large cast-iron specimens were produced in the area in the second half of the 19th Century. They frequently have ornaments, reliefs and decorated fountain heads.

Visit Instructions:
Only one log per location per person (meaning multiple visits -> multiple logged visits -> OK!). You should log your own waymarked fountains as well. After all, you did in fact visit the area to which you marked to way.

Even if an individual waymark owner has a requirement indicating a photo is required, it is not. If there is any dispute, contact the category management group for clarification.
