Hetsche Maar

Gillenfeld

Share content:

Hetsche Maar is the oldest maar in the Eifel and it is only 5 meters deep.
It is about 200 meters north west of the Dürren Maar and it is depply embedded in the surrounding fields, but visible form the street between Brockscheid and Gillenfeld. It is the smallest maar in the Eifel and created by one to two eruptions. Today it's silted up into a booy sedge. 

By the way, Hetsche is the Gillenfeld colloquialism for the common toad, a reference to a local inhabitant
