The water of the “Dreisborn” contains carbon dioxide (CO2), which is of volcanic origin. It occurs on a geological fault on which the Mosenberg volcanic group and the Meerfeld Maar are also located and which dams up the water flowing underground from the Mosenberg. The chemical composition is similar to the well-known Dauner Sprudel. The water has an average temperature of 9.8 ° Celsius.
The"Dreisborn"" in the Prembach valley was buried for a long time and was only uncovered again in 1991. The spring socket was made with a great deal of craftsmanship from a single reddish bunter sandstone block. This rock is found to the west, where it forms the ridges. The stone carving was very probably made in the 17th to 18th centuries. Originally, the fountain was about 1.20 m high. However, the setting is not completely preserved.
As part of a measure of the Volcano Eifel Nature and Geopark, the spring and the forecourt were redesigned and made accessible.
The “Dreisborn” belongs to the municipality of Bettenfeld. A hike along the VulkaMaar path will take you close by.
