  • ...Schaut one they themselves also. Missed you there, so tragisch...es is now a lot more beautiful and exciting

  • The German town of Donaueschingen owes its tourism in this structure at the foot of the castle of Furstenberg that should be the source of the Danube, but many doubt. You see just a kiddie pool with water almost stops. In short, nothing fancy.

  • Very well restored fountain. But there is deception, is not the place where the Danube is formed, this is just a diversion of the Brigach. The Danube forms a few hundred metres downstream.

  • 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.
