Möhrendorfer Wasserräder

Wiki: An der Regnitz wurde bereits in der Zeit zwischen 1250 und 1400 damit begonnen, hölzerne Wasserschöpfräder zur Bewässerung der an den Fluss angrenzenden Felder einzusetzen. Urkundlich belegt ist der Betrieb dieser Räder erstmals für das Jahr 1413. Im Jahre 1805 waren an der Regnitz zwischen Fürth und Forchheim auf einer Länge von ca. 25 Flusskilometern etwa 190 solche Wasserräder in Betrieb, so viele wie an keinem anderen Fluss in Mitteleuropa. Rechnet man die Räder an der Rednitz hinzu, so waren zwischen Schwabach und Forchheim sogar rund 250 Wasserräder im Einsatz. Mittlerweile wurden sie weitgehend durch moderne Pumpanlagen verdrängt.

More About Franconia

Wikipedia: Franconia (German: Franken) is a region of Germany comprising the northern parts of the modern state of Bavaria, a small part of southern Thuringia, and a region in northeastern Baden-Württemberg called Heilbronn-Franken. The Bavarian part is made up of the administrative regions of Lower Franconia (Unterfranken), Middle Franconia (Mittelfranken), and Upper Franconia (Oberfranken).Franconia (like France) is named after the Germanic tribe of the Franks. This tribe played a major role after the breakdown of the Roman Empire and colonised large parts of medieval Europe.Modern day Franconia comprises only a very tiny and rather remote part of the settlement area of the ancient Franks. In German, Franken is used for both modern day Franconians and the historic Franks, which leads to some confusion. The historic Frankish Empire, Francia, is actually the common precursor of the Low Countries, France and Germany. In 843 the Treaty of Verdun led to the partition of Francia into West Francia (modern day France), Middle Francia (from the Low Countries along the Rhine valley to northern Italy) and East Francia (modern day Germany). Frankreich, the German word for "France", and Frankrijk, the Dutch word for "France"; literally mean "the Frankish Empire".
