The geological highlight awaits nature lovers and hikers in the Wolf Gorge. Former lava flows from the Mosenberg crater, which have found their way into the valley, can now be marvelled at as basalt columns in the Wolfsschlucht. See how the lava slid down into the valley and solidified into columns as it cooled.

In earlier times, these basalt blocks were quarried. Human hands contributed to the discovery, as did the water of the "Horngraben" stream, which made its way in between. This has now resulted in a challenging, yet walkable way for hikers to hike up the Wolf Gorge. Certainly, the direction upwards is easier to master.

Only caution should be exercised in approaching the site from above and not to leave the designated path. The VulkaMaar path leads up through the Wolfsschlucht gorge in the direction of the Mosenberg Volcano Experience Park.
