The Rauscherpark is a particularly attractive section of the Nettetal. The water rushes over mighty basalt blocks in cascades over the only natural waterfall of the Nette. On 16 illustrated boards, the volcanism in the region is explained and how the Nette has been sawing its way through a lava flow of the Wannen volcanic group for over 200,000 years.

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.
