The Volcanic Eifel: Land of maar lakes and volcanoes. The Volcanic Eifel puts its history - in which fire and water play the leading roles - on show unlike almost any other landscape. Discover a region full of superlatives: youngest, deepest, widest maar; and the sources of well-known kinds of mineral water! The guided excursions, numerous museums, recreation areas and nature parks, footpaths, cycle routes and themed trails are experiences to be remembered.
A volcanic region in the middle of Germany - dormant, but not extinct. Germany’s youngest landscape was created only 13,000 years ago in the Mayen-Koblenz District by the eruption of the Laacher See (Lake Laach) Volcano. Was this the beginning of a new era of volcanic activity or the end of a period of continuous eruptions lasting thousands of years?
Discover the places of interest in the East Eifel in the Vulkanpark Laacher See (Lake Laach Volcano Park). The beautiful landscape invites you to go on delightful walks along well-signposted paths and geo-trails or energetic cycle tours through the fascinating world of volcanoes.
