Long Description:
En af Roskildes mange kilder er Rektorkilden som kan ses i haven bag den gamle Rektorbolig. Der er offentlig adgang fra Lille Maglekildestræde.
I 1832 forsvandt kilden, men dukkede op igen i slutningen af 1800-tallet. Det kan ikke anbefales at drikke vandet.
På en sten ved kilden er der indgraveret "Kirstens kilde" . Det var rektor Hauch der omdøbte den da han fik sit første barnebarn Kirsten. Kilden hedder dog officielt Rektorkilden.


One of Roskilde's many springs is the Headmaster's Spring, which can be seen in the garden behind the old Headmaster's residence. There is public access from Lille Maglekildestræde.
In 1832, the spring disappeared, but reappeared in the late 1800s. It is not recommended to drink the water.
On a stone by the spring is engraved "Kirsten's spring". It was Headmaster Hauch who renamed it when he had his first grandchild Kirsten. However, the spring is officially called the Headmaster's Spring.
