  • Distance: 26.2 km
  • Duration: 5:30 h
  • Difficulty: difficult



The themed route can even be classed as an adventure route, and with the exception of a few natural paths runs generally on hard surfaces. 
The Mürmes nature reserve, a lava field and unique views onto the Steineberger Ley disused mine make this route unforgettable. 
Hardly anyone expects the Mürmes to contain dry maars.

Along the route

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!
