The field on the weinberg near gestungshausen was still a community forest when the klausenquelle was captured and restored in 1970. The place with its seating and the splashing water, even in the driest summer, quickly became a popular destination for a sunday stroll. Now, 50 years later, it has taken on a new shine.
“The surroundings had taken on a bit of patina”, paraphrases forster bernd lauterbach. After the incorporation of gestungshausen into sonnefeld, the community forest was sold and today belongs to the coburg forestry operation of the bavarian state forestry commission (baysf). According to bernd lauterbach, the company has paid a four-digit sum for this public service task.
