Secondly we saw an exposition about how the water is taken.

The exposition said the water is taken in a different way than in other places. When it rains the water falls in the ground and then is taken and that system is called '' Lend water ''.

They explained to us that in Langeoog are half million of tourists then people who are living here all the year, because there are only 2000 people. There is a street on Langeoog where you can not drive cars because that's the place where the water is taken. '' The infohaus altes wasserwerk'' it's the place where you can taste the sweet water accumulate in the plant from the island, then the salt water falls into the bottom and the sweet water stays on the top.
