Schwarze Wand

Schwarze Wand


The section of a cinder volcano shows the viewer the entire range of the tephra that was once ejected during the eruption, the entirety of the volcanic loose masses.
These are fine ashes, the little stones "lapilli", bizarre fly ash and thick lumps called "bombs".

The color spectrum of the layered stones goes from red to brown to black, depending on the distance to the chimney. To which of the nearby volcanoes this breakdown wall can be assigned cannot yet be specifically stated.

The following hiking and walking trails lead past the Black Wall:

• Premium hiking trail "Pellenzer Seepfad" Traumpfad (16.0 km)

• Panorama path "Eppelsberg" - Geopfad route N (13.0 km)

Gleitfalte am Dachsbusch

The mining of volcanic material on the Dachsbusch ate deeper and deeper into the old cinder cone. It gives us an insight into the volcanic and climatic history. The volcanic layers show how they slipped during a cold period about 150,000 years ago due to the alternation of thawing and freezing. The badger bush does not need to fear further depletion, as the area is now a nature reserve. Follow the signposted path to the right up to the gliding fold, where you will find more information.
