Geroda: the source is being researched

There is no plan from the bierhauslerquelle in geroda. It lies on the edge of a path in the forest area of seiferts-eller. It has been gushing since 1902 and supplies the town with drinking water. At the suggestion of the health department of bad kissingen, the local council would like to explore the source with a camera at the beginning of the week.

"We liked to examine the stock", explains heike kraus. The hydrogeologist from the baur consult office in habfurt is currently frequently on the road in the region. In addition to geroda, it also accompanies the rehabilitation of the springs in motten and the drilling of the new well in the neighboring community of schondra. The bierhausler spring, she says, has not been structurally altered in 115 years. Only on the land have ditches been dug, earth has been filled in and a small house has been built above the spring shaft.

Bathroom rodach soon also for drinking

Lifting jugs like those in the bohemian health resorts could soon be available for the spa guests in bad rodach as well. New expert reports show that the water of the spa also has a healing effect when used internally, as managing director stine michel informed on thursday. A concept is now being developed to make the water from the thermal fountains available to guests for internal use as well. "We want to create a second mainstay and a unique selling point", explains lutz lange from the management of the therme.
The water in one of the thermal wells is highly mineralized. "It can be used for detoxification in the gastrointestinal tract", explains stine michel. So you could imagine that soon spa guests would be sitting in front of the spa with small jugs and taking a few sips of healing water for internal use after a bath. It is just one of many steps that are being taken to bring the therme forward.
Mayor tobias ehrlicher (SPD) speaks of a "rough draft" for the spa and bath rodach. It will take time to complete this project. It includes an extensive redesign of the entire facility. A start has already been made in the foyer and box office area. The showers were supposed to wait, but are now being brought forward and renovated. "We will organize this in such a way that it can happen during ongoing operations", says stine michel. Because all those responsible agree that a closure of the baths should be avoided at all costs.

Overall concept in view

all the steps being taken now are already geared to the future overall concept, emphasizes tobias ehrlicher. This includes the treetop trail, a special recreational area that was established last year. "When we choose tiles for a section now, we are already thinking about how they will fit in with what is planned further down the line", says ehrlicher.
While this year for the "rough throw" before planning can move forward, small steps will be taken to increase the attractiveness of the spa and sauna area, as was done last year. Nancy grau reports, for example, on the partnership with the sambafestival.
There were employees of the spa in bathrobes with samba headdresses on the road to promote the spa. An action that also brought guests to bad rodach to relax after the exhausting festival, as she notes. A specially created cocktail then awaited the sambistas there.

Gefaller children are now okokids

"Have all a partner? Okay, here we go!" today is again a forest day in kindergarten st. Antonius in fall. Together with their teachers melanie, swantje and birgit, the children aged between two and six set off for the nearby waldstuck on the outskirts of gefall.
"In april 2015, we went to the forest for the first time", remembers kindergarten director katja endres. "We had planned and prepared everything well. Nevertheless, it was exciting, because even the youngest were involved at that time."

New and exciting

in the meantime, regular forest days have become an integral part of the educational work. And what do the children think?? "They look forward to it every time and ask when they will finally go into the forest again. There is always something new and exciting to discover! Also for us educators."
In addition to our own research and play in nature, there are also ideas and projects in cooperation with the rhon biosphere reserve and the responsible forester, mr. Dahmer.
"Despite additional work, we decided this year to submit the documentation guide of one of our forest projects to the LBV (landesbund fur vogelschutz e.V.)."
