The "Strotzbüscher Quelle" (Strotzbüch spring) in the Ueßbachtal valley is one of the warm mineral water springs. Not far from Strotzbüch, located in the Westeifel-Moseltal area, hikers will find the warm spring of almost 20°C, as a spring in the southern area of the Volcanic Eifel.

In 1938, the spring was already tapped 3 - 4 m below the water level of the Ueßbach with a steel bell and the mineral water was transported to the surface via a riser pipe. Later, it was decided to drill a new hole to capture the acidulous water at a depth of 6.20 metres. The sodium hydrogen carbonate chloride acidulous water has as a special feature a water temperature of almost 20°C and with 4030 mg of dissolved minerals per litre it is richer in minerals than the healing water of the Bad Bertrich thermal spring.

The overflow of the spring basin is fed into the Ueßbach stream, passing by. If you want to find the spring and taste it, you should be good on your feet, as a kind of "via ferrata" leads there. The descent is worth it!

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!
