  • The origin of the later large and Danube is a Baroque fountain in a jewelry full. A digital information Board provides further information

  • There is a modern lift to down, bit dark already towards evening from 17 h. The Info Panel is modern and very informative. Just next to the town church. Ample parking all around.

  • One of the many attractions in Donaueschingen. After the restoration it again shines in new splendour

  • 1) What I learnt at school: the river Danube originates in the Black Forest. 2) What I expected: a quiet clearing in a pine forest where a corroded iron tube sticks out from among the mossy rocks, and from that tube water slowly pours into a tiny stream that would later grow to be our huge river. 3) What I got: a round pool surrounded by a group of statues in the middle of a town. Since the pool is surrounded by a stone fence you cannot get to touch the water. 4) Why I wasn't disappointed anyway: albeit this is in Germany, those who erected the multilingual monument were as kind to design it the way that the Hungarian epigraph would be at the top. I know this is no big deal for them, only a tiny gesture, but for us Hungarians it means a lot. Truly.
  • Beautiful Victorian style serene and meditative place. I adore the circular structure, the magic of the water that are to become a mighty river....
  • Nicely setup spring of a small Creek with the name Donaubach. Advertised as the spring of the Danube although this is hydrologically incorrect.
  • Best place to be, the place wherw the great Danube river has its roots.
  • Very beautiful place, the town is so nice, tidy an clean, with a lot of cafes and restaurants where you can seat outside and enjoy.
