Everything started at the Seebach spring

People came to this place as early as the Stone Age, settling down, building houses, cultivating the landscape.

The Seebachquelle is an artesian rejection source. The water comes from the deepest water resources and could be 10,000 years old. The quality directly at the exit is equivalent to mineral water.

The Seebachquelle with 5,000 m3 of water per day is the most important and most abundant source of water in Rheinhessen. the water temperature is constantly 9 degrees.

Since ancient times, the source area of iron bars is fenced. About several stages you get to a stone-scooped point, also referred to as a car wash, which is wrong, since this place was reserved only for drinking and cooking water removal of the surrounding households.
Occasionally, silver and copper coins mourn on the bottom. it brings luck - one says - to make a sacrifice to the source. And luckily, the Seegässer boys sometimes tried to lift the coin treasure. One once hid a silver piece with the image of the Virgin Mary and the year 1687.
The following pond-like extension, the lake, was formerly used in the summer as a Pferdeschwemme and washing women for washing and for mintere talks. From their work, the broad stepping stones still announce.
