"Galgen" Ulmen

"Galgen" Ulmen


On the hike through the Mai- and Brandenbusch at about kilometre 4 you will find experience point no. 5 - another scene of gruesome violent crimes - the gallows.

Once you have climbed the hill to the plateau of the Jakobsberg, you will find yourself at almost 550 NN. The open view over the region was used even then to announce the gallows of justice from a distance, clearly visible to all. Unfortunately, it did not stop one or two offenders, so that they were ultimately allowed to take their last look into the distance there. It was to be the last look.

On your hike "Witches, Hangmen & Scoundrels", the experience point 5 is the "gallows", now you walk downhill towards the 3rd shame spot.

Schalkenmehrener Maar

Especially if you visit the GesundLand Vulkaneifel in summer, a detour to the Schalkenmehren Maar is a must. Located directly at the village of the same name and opposite the Weinfelder Maar, the Schalkenmehrener Maar is one of the three Dauner Maars and offers a wonderful backdrop for an extended walk or an extensive hike. If you look closely, you can see that the Schalkenmehren Maar was once a double maar, formed by volcanic activity around 20,000 to 30,000 years ago. But the tuffs of the western maar filled up the eastern maar funnel, so that nothing can be seen of the second maar today, except for the fen vegetation that has spread in this area. Take a little discovery tour and observe numerous animal and plant species along the way!
