Strohn Volcano House
In the Strohn Volcano House (“Vulkanhaus Strohn”), fundamental volcanic phenomena are explained, taking examples from the immediate surrounding area. Small experiments, exhibits hidden in adventure forests and adventure rooms that visitors can enter offer lasting impressions.
Explanatory graphics and large-scale photos of active volcanoes provide a vivid illustration of the scientific background.
A highlight of the museum, and a geological monument of Europe-wide importance, is the lava fissure wall, which is six metres long and four meters high, and is about 12,000 years old. in 1992, the wall was found while mining in the nearby quarry. Today, its mystical aura is underscored by clever lighting.
