A seemingly peaceful fountain awakens, begins to bubbling. Suddenly, a fountain of 9 ° C of cold water shoots into the sky, for six minutes it bubbles up. The haunted by, the "Brubbel" like the locals call their phenomenon affectionate, is just as flashy. The basis for this nature play forms a carbonated source, one as there are hundreds in the Eifel. These wanted to use the Wallenborner industrially in the early 1930s and began to drill. But with this attempt, they were blasting earth and water. They had come upon a chamber in which rising CO2 accumulated and exhaled with force and water to the surface. The fact that the "Brubbel" spits today still at such regular intervals can be explained by a comparison: Similar to a bubbler which is shaken, the pressure rises in the underground chamber. At some point, or more precisely, after 35 minutes, it exceeds the pressure of the water column above. Born the Wallende Born - a show that you should not miss!

Schalkenmehrener Maar

The Schalkenmehren maars are lined up along a fissure running SE to NW. About 20,000 to 30,000 years ago they erupted: one by one: the dry maar, the low-moor bog, then the water-filled maar, probably a double maar. This water-filled maar is open for swimming and boating. There is partly nature - protected area which joins the moor and is fenced.                                                                                                                                                                                                     Stand : 31.03.2020
