Burg Olbrück

Burg Olbrück


The castle invites you to travel back in time through thousands of years of exciting geological and cultural history!

Olbrück Castle is located in the middle of the magnificent volcanic area of the Eifel.
The geological dimension of volcanism and the cultural-historical dimension of the Middle Ages collide here directly and become tangible at Olbrück Castle!

On a romantic tour around the ruins you will experience - guided through the various narrative stations - formative developments in our history and thus reach the age of the creation of this medieval castle.
After all, the lord of the castle awaits you in the imposing keep, who thinks about creation and the worldview ... The tour, which is both exciting and informative for children and adults, uses professional audiovisual technology.
Experience history up close and "grasp" it: You will encounter exhibits you can touch, immerse yourself in a world of exciting stories with musical accompaniment and impressive light projection in the vaults of the keep. This makes the tour an unforgettable experience that leads up to the tower's plateau and offers a spectacular view of the Vulkaneifel.

 A visit that invites you to come back!

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.
