Blautopf Blaubeuren

One look is enough: there is something magical about this place. Blue and green flow into one another in an almost incomparable way. Like a shining eye from the depths of the earth, a source of myths, fairy tales and all sorts of wondrous stories. One of the most beautiful is probably the “History of the beautiful Lau”, in which Eduard Mörike tells how a mermaid at the Blautopf learns to laugh again. A stone sculpture on the bank is a reminder of her … and on some days she can still be seen briefly in the depths of the spring funnel.

Weishaupt Art Gallery

Municipal gallery Ehingen
