Long Description:
Kildehus ved Maglekilde.
I 1927 blev det lille sekskantede kildehus bygget over Maglekilde udspring. En kanal under jorden fører vandet videre til Neptuns kildegrotte. I toppen af kildehuset er der en vindfløj som ikke forestiller en havfrue, men en sø jomfru. Hun repræsenterer det ferske vand, og har tidligere siddet på taget af et kurbad.

Engang var der i Roskilde 12 navngivne kilder, nu er der 8 tilbage. Maglekilde er den kraftigste kilde i Roskilde. I dag producerer den 15.000 liter vand i timen, men tidligere har den været seks gange så vandrig. Der har tidligere været 5 vandmøller og et kurbad med vand fra Maglekilde.


In 1927, the small hexagonal spring house was built over Maglekilde springs. An underground canal carries the water on to Neptune's spring cave. At the top of the spring house there is a wind vane which does not represent a mermaid, but a lake virgin. She represents the fresh water, and has previously sat on the roof of a spa.

Once there were 12 named springs in Roskilde, now there are 8 left. Maglekilde is the most powerful spring in Roskilde. Today it produces 15,000 liters of water per hour, but in the past it has been six times as watery. There have previously been 5 watermills and a spa with water from Maglekilde.
