    you are right, these spots are called Trinkhalle. Except in Frankfurt. A friend of me lives only one street away from Sinn and wrote this about exactly this place:

    Hi -

    No, you really, really can't.

    And even if you understand German, it's all in hessian dialect, which is, shall we say, ... ... ... ... ... ... challenging?

    Hi,

    thx for this nice "short story", I can read every word (I'm a Frankforder). And I know this especially "Wasserhäuschen", I drived every day nearly of it - but with the bicycle and I had no stop.

    This "location" is not far away from the Sinn factory. Perhaps we have a watch meeting at Sinn, it is a great pleasure to visit this "Wasserhäuschen".

    cheers

    A bit late into the fold, but my EZM1 and 856 would love to see their birthplace! Keep me posted if it is not too late.

    I'm really interested in this Martin if I can swing it. We're going to be on holiday 7-14 Oct on top of just getting my business started in the next weeks (bad timing for hols but it was pre-arranged).

    I look forward to hearing more news.
    Cheers,
    Bruce
