Loop is an expression in traditional German for path – we invite students, citizens and visitors interested in water to follow this water path and find information about hydrological processes: precipitation, evaporation, infiltration, percolation, and how these processes define the amount of groundwater that is available for drinking, agriculture and for the environment.
