Aug 14, 2022 - Oct 30, 2022
Guided tours to the volcanic lakes of the Eifel - Today's Maar: Weinfelder Maar
Quiet, peaceful and mysterious lies the Weinfelder Maar - also known as the Maar of the Dead. But appearances are deceptive. It was not always like this! "Once subterranean forces raged down there, masses of fire and lava were hurled upwards, now a smooth flood fills the basin like tears in a bowl" is how the poet Clara Viebig described the Maar in a tragic novella. Embark on a journey back in time, which was dominated by violent explosions and fire from the bowels of the earth. Discover with us a gem, a picturesquely situated chapel on historic ground. Listen to the stories and legends of people who lived, worked and painted here.
