Strohn Volcano House

Strohn Volcano House


In the Strohn Volcano House ("Vulkanhaus Strohn") you can experience that a museum can be anything but boring and uninteresting! Especially with children it is worth a visit, because here volcanism is brought to young and old museum guests in an exciting and interactive way. The fact that the phenomena of volcanism can still be found in the immediate vicinity of the Volcano House "Vulkanhaus"  makes it special.

Small experiments, exhibits hidden in experience walls and walk-in experience rooms will leave amazing impressions. Also discover the unique lava fissure wall, which is more than 12,000 years old and was found during quarrying in the nearby quarry. Today, the wall with a remarkable size - six metres in length and four metres in height - adorns the museum and causes astonished faces. After your visit to the museum, enjoy coffee and cake next door in the museum café.

Schalkenmehrener Maar

Especially if you visit the GesundLand Vulkaneifel in summer, a detour to the Schalkenmehren Maar is a must. Located directly at the village of the same name and opposite the Weinfelder Maar, the Schalkenmehrener Maar is one of the three Dauner Maars and offers a wonderful backdrop for an extended walk or an extensive hike. If you look closely, you can see that the Schalkenmehren Maar was once a double maar, formed by volcanic activity around 20,000 to 30,000 years ago. But the tuffs of the western maar filled up the eastern maar funnel, so that nothing can be seen of the second maar today, except for the fen vegetation that has spread in this area. Take a little discovery tour and observe numerous animal and plant species along the way!
