At present, it is advisable to move as many leisure activities as possible outside. A good way to get to know your own city a little better. For example, have you ever visited the water park at the Friedberger Warte? Here you can not only sit in the sun, but also learn interesting things about our drinking water. Three years ago a water nature trail was opened here. The path of the drinking water is vividly traced at various stations - from the source, treatment and transport to use and recovery. In a short time, the water trail has become a popular destination for excursions - and not only for children. It is also quite exciting for adults to learn more about the number one foodstuff. The water-bearing exhibits invite you to try out and linger. They are connected by an approximately 200-metre long and three metres wide wooden walkway, which is modelled on a natural watercourse. The nature trail has a total of nine stations. Explanatory panels provide further information. The associated public drinking fountain is also back in operation.
In addition to the water park, the two public Mainova drinking fountains in downtown Frankfurt have also been put back into operation. In Grosse Bockenheimer Strasse and Liebfrauenstrasse on the corner of the Zeil, passers-by can now quench their thirst again and refresh themselves on the way. At the push of a button, drinking water of impeccable quality and from regional sources will gush from the water dispensers. Especially with rising summer temperatures, this is simply refreshing and good!
Mainova has set up these at highly frequented locations in the city centre to offer one of the best controlled food products on site free of charge. The approximately two-metre high stainless steel columns are extremely popular with passers-by: the drinking fountains are used around 600 times a day. But in these times, of course, prudence also applies here: all users of the drinking fountains are asked to observe the usual rules of hygiene when using them. This includes the request not to operate the button with bare hands.
