Streetview with the typical German houses
Paderborn is a city in eastern North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, capital of the Paderborn district. The name of the city derives from the river Pader and ‘born’, an old German term for the source of a river. The river Pader originates in more than 200 springs near Paderborn Cathedral, where St. Liborius is buried. A city walk in Paderborn is the best way to explore this city with great historical buildings.

The water comes through the stones of church and the square and slowly runs into this pond.
That takes a couple of days so it is not fresh water anymore
