Hans Christian Andersen visited as a child with his mother the holy spring. Here they attended religious gatherings at the annual St. Hans Market, which took place at the spring. The spring can be found in a field belonging to Regissegård near Kongshøj Creek in Frørup. The spring was renovated in 1993-95.
