Eifel Volcano Museum
The volcano museum in the old Daun district office was created as a supplement to the existing geopaths and is part of the nature and geopark.
The museum gives visitors a close-up view of the volcanic phenomena and activities, worldwide and in the Vulkaneifel.
A couple of powerful kicks on a pedal and red magma is pumped through a tube. A hiss and steam from a red glowing volcano dome arises and white clouds rise. Young and old volcanologists can understand the events that shook the GesundLand Vulkaneifel millennia ago in such a real way.
It is not only technically sophisticated, it also has interactive models that elicit one or the other "Oh!" from visitors to the Eifel volcano museum. Various exhibits from volcanoes, some of which are still active, revive Earth's history. Connections between continental drift and the emergence of the Hocheifel landscape are clearly illustrated on information boards. Three-dimensional models of cinder cones, maars and mineral springs provide deep insights into the otherwise hidden interior of the earth.
Clearly, the geological museum is a must for those interested in geology. But a visit is also worthwhile for everyone who doesn't just want to bathe in Maar-lakes and hike over cinder cones. There is hardly a more informative and exciting possibilty for experiencing volcanism during your vacation in the GesundLand Vulkaneifel.
