Sauerbrunnen healing spring
Coordinates: 50 "23/04" North, 7 ° 08/37 "
Mayen County
VG Mendig

On the road between Riedener Mühle and Hausten past the Hotel Forsthaus, do not turn towards Volkesfeld, up a small tarred road to the right. Residents free, but it is difficult to turn. However, there is a parking lot opposite the path. Approx. 200m walk to the fountain

The spring, which is 35 meters underground, was taken in 1968 and has been gushing out about 9 liters per minute since then. On his rise
the water from the underground rocks absorbs many minerals. The calcium-magnesium-hydrogen carbonate sourling,
which is subject to constant examination, is very rich in minerals such as iron, calcium and magnesium and has healing signs for the stomach, intestines and bile. The sour taste and the reddish color are due to the high iron content in the water and are not a deficiency, but characterize the source as very valuable. The initial examination showed that the water meets the requirements of a state
recognized medicinal water. However, the approval process was waived so that everyone can enjoy the healthy water without any problems.

The healthy refreshment is free for them.
To the delight of other visitors, please leave the facility as you found it.

Laacher See

With around 3.3 km² and a depth of 53 m, Laacher See is the largest lake in Rhineland-Palatinate. The area around the lake has been a nature reserve for almost 80 years. The last eruption of the former “Laacher volcano” occurred around 10,930 BC. B.C., about 13,000 years ago. Traces of volcanic activity can still be found in the form of volcanic outgassing, the so-called mofettes, on the eastern shore of the lake. The total ejection quantity of the outbreak at that time was about 16 km³. The eruption was one and a half times as strong as that of Pinatubo in 1991, or 6 times as strong as the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980. Although Laacher See is widely regarded as the largest maar in the Vulkaneifel, it is scientifically not a maar and also not a real crater lake, but a water-filled caldera - a burglary crater that resulted from a collapse after the magma chamber was emptied below the volcanic cone. The volcanic mountain collapses and only the ring bead on the outer edge remains. Over time, the remaining boiler fills up with water. The Laacher See is in the Eifel, next to the neighboring Wehrer Kessel, the largest caldera and the only water-filled one in Central Europe.
