Barocker Pfarrgarten mit Kirche in Wehr

Wehr

Baroque parish garden with church in Wehr.

The Baroque parish garden located on Kirchstrasse / Im Wingert is approx. 3000 m² (58 m x 51 m) and is enclosed on three sides by a three meter high wall made of Wehrer tuff.

The garden is the southwestern part of the former Premonstratensian provost office, which belonged to the Steinfeld monastery in the Eifel.
The complex also includes the baroque parish church, the former Propsteigebuilding and the cellar.
The garden has a mild climate by Wehrer standards and the soil is particularly fertile.
The Romanesque tower of the church consecrated to St. Potentinus dates back to 1230. The baroque nave was completed in 1702 as a replacement for an originally smaller building.
Tower and church have been restored over the past few decades, and the church environment has been redesigned.

Lava-Dome - Deutsches Vulkanmuseum

The Lava Dome is a very special museum in the Volcano Park in the East Eifel. On 700 square metres it is not "museum-like", but spectacular - for children and adults, for absolute newcomers and for those who are pre-informed about volcanism. In the "Land of Volcanoes", a multimedia show tells the story of two violent volcanic eruptions. Images, sounds and projections let you relive them - up close and intense, but fortunately virtual. The "volcano workshop" is a genuine small science centre. At experimental stations, visitors gain a vivid impression of the processes inside the earth. The "Time of the Volcanoes" lets stones speak: Anyone who touches them can hear and see the great eruptions of times gone by. Current seismological data and images from webcams around the world are particularly exciting. And in the round cinema, a fictitious news programme takes your breath away, because here it becomes clear what another eruption of the Laacher See volcano would mean.
