In the year 1552 four miners from Saalfeld pushed after hard work of some months on water, they had achieved a depth of 80 m. So they maked the second deepest well at that time for Thuringia .

The windlass already became taken off 1690 by a big traversing wheel. It should remain almost 200 years into its function. Countless prisoners promoted the water in hard work from the depth of the internal width mountain.
A film talks about the hisstory and technology of the fountain during the visit.
