St. Johannes Evangelist


Share content:

The Catholic parish church of St. Johannes Evangelist was built in 1867/68 by August Rincklage and Caspar Clemens Pickel according to plans drawn up in 1855 by the Cologne cathedral builder Friedrich von Schmidt.

It is a basalt rubble basilica in the form of doctrinal neo-Gothic (Dehio, Rhineland-Palatinate, 1984, p. 1017).
On May 6, 1867, the foundation stone was laid by Dechant Stadelmayer from Mayen.
The tower of the old church, built in the Romanesque style, was preserved, but it was only raised to match the new church.

Lava-Dome - Deutsches Vulkanmuseum

The Lava Dome is a very special museum in the Volcano Park in the East Eifel. On 700 square metres it is not "museum-like", but spectacular - for children and adults, for absolute newcomers and for those who are pre-informed about volcanism. In the "Land of Volcanoes", a multimedia show tells the story of two violent volcanic eruptions. Images, sounds and projections let you relive them - up close and intense, but fortunately virtual. The "volcano workshop" is a genuine small science centre. At experimental stations, visitors gain a vivid impression of the processes inside the earth. The "Time of the Volcanoes" lets stones speak: Anyone who touches them can hear and see the great eruptions of times gone by. Current seismological data and images from webcams around the world are particularly exciting. And in the round cinema, a fictitious news programme takes your breath away, because here it becomes clear what another eruption of the Laacher See volcano would mean.
