The Blautopf

Forming the headwaters of the river Blau, the Blautopf arises from the Swabian Jura mountains of southern Germany. Meaning “Blue Pot” in German, the spring’s dazzling color lends itself easily to myth and fascination.

The Blautopf is actually one endpoint of a vast underground cave system in the area’s karst landscape. Over millennia, erosion has dug an intricate and ever-growing network of tunnels through the region’s soft limestone, creating a complex underground drainage system.
