The Germanenbrücke (Germanic Bridge) over the Kleine Kyll is a way to cross the Kleine Kyll and an integral part of the hiking trail "Achtsamkeitspfad Kleine Kyll. The bridge had to be renovated again in 2015 because the snow load caused several trees to collapse onto the bridge in winter. This made it impassable for the time being. So the only thing left for the district forester to do was to rebuild it.

Then came the flood in July 2021 and the bridge was destroyed again. The reconstruction was already completed in October and the bridge could be reopened.

Many hikers cross the important link to the Wolf Gorge between Bettenfeld and Manderscheid. The unique landscape here is a centre of attraction, and yet it radiates a peace and power that every hiker becomes aware of when crossing.

The Germanic Bridge is Mindfulness Point 4 and stands for inspiration. On site you will find a plaque with a detailed explanation.

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!
