The Darscheid "Drees", the ferruginous "Säuerling" (acidulous spring) located in the middle of the forest in the direct vicinity of the "Lehbach", has been bubbling out of a newly constructed well since 2014.
Its particularly high iron concentration of 46 mg/litre characterises the Darscheid "Drees", which bubbles away on the edge of the village in the forest. It contains more iron than any other spring in the Volcanic Eifel. This is only possible because the rising water passes through so many layers of iron-bearing rock and thus extracts the iron. The villagers already knew this in the past, because the "Säuerling" was already tapped for the first time in 1870. In 2013, the spring was moved about 100 metres to its current location and redesigned.

Enjoy the weakly mineralised, 8 degree cold water when you are on the way in Darscheid.

Further information can be found in the brochure: "Dreese - Mineralwasser- und Kohlensäurequellen der Vulkaneifel".
