Fuschna-Quelle
The Fuschna spring delights with its different sources, which makes it very interesting.

Description

The water of the Fuschna spring comes to light in two places: firstly in a cave-like depression filled with reddish water, and secondly directly from the ground, east of the depression. The watercourse is marked by red coloured iron hydroxide mud.

In the depression it can be observed how the strong CO2 emission forms small bubbles that rise in the pond.

Since there is no catchment, the water cannot be tasted.

Be careful when staying at the spring because of falling rocks.
