Daun

The "Burgbrunnen", as it is called by the inhabitants of Daun, is probably the best known and most popular "Drees" in the town of Daun. The spring on the left bank of the Lieser, located at the foot of the Daun "Burgberg", contains calcium-magnesium-sodium-hydrogen carbonate and emerges carbonated with a water temperature of about 10 degrees.
The spring got its name from the Mosel-Franconian expression "Hotzen", which means to shake, bounce up and down. This applies to the contained mineral spring, which in fact spills out into the open air.

During the Dauner "Drees" hike, you will see hikers and locals filling their bottles with the cool water along the way. People have been using the tasty sparkling water for drinking and baking for centuries.

"Hotzendrees" was already mentioned under this name more than 400 years ago by the Heidelberg physician and botanist Jakob Theodor Tabernämontanus in his herbal book published in 1588. There he describes its healing effect on many diseases.
Refresh and heal yourself on the way.
