Mauerley

Wassenach

Naturally exposed basaltic lava flow.

The Mauerley is remarkable in several ways:

On one hand, it offers the great picture of a naturally exposed lava flow over a length of almost two kilometers.
Long rows of mighty basalt lava columns stand almost uninterrupted on the southern edge of the valley between Burgbrohl and Glees.

Larger sections of the lava flow, which have slipped downwards, form imposing, impassable block fields in the beech-lined valley slope. On the other hand, the block fields in particular offer an ideal habitat for some rare animal and plant species.

The badger lays its structures between the basalt lava blocks.

Evergreen creates a blue sea of flowers in spring.

Führung im Lavakeller Mendig, © Eifel Tourismus GmbH, D. Ketz

Lavakeller – Einmalige Landschaft in der Tiefe

There are many steps leading deep down below the town of Mendig: Here in the lava cellars, in the middle of the cooled volcanic rock, it is consistently cold even in the hottest summers, there is a mysterious dim light, there is the smell of moisture. Up to 28 Mendig breweries used the 32-metre-high, cathedral-like halls in the basalt rock to store fresh beer. Mighty pillars, left standing during centuries of basalt and lava mining, support the gigantic cellars. A guided tour through the cellars is an unforgettable aha experience. The Vulkan Brewery in Mendig, which is located above the cellars, still uses this unique cold storage facility today. The Lava Dome as a multimedia museum shows many more exciting facets of volcanism.
