Maria Laach

The mascot of the Laacher See volcanic region "Laachus", the floating pumice stone, accompanies the children along the 300 m long stone adventure trail on the monastery wall of Maria Laach and introduces them to volcanism with puzzles and child-friendly tables.

In between, the rest area invites the parents to take a short break while the children can let off steam with a jumping game and go on a journey of discovery through the legendary volcanic region of the Laacher See.

At the end of the stone adventure path, a souvenir photo can be taken together with "Laachus" at a photo point.

Laachus suitcase:

The adventure game, the entire story of "Laachus" and his search for the answer to why he can swim, information cards and much more can be found in the Laachus suitcase.

You can get it from the tourist information centers in Maria Laach and Niederzissen (town hall) or from our online shop.

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.
