Demerather Drees


Share content:

Visit the “Demerather Drees”, the "Säuerling" in the middle of the forest in the immediate vicinity of the Geisert nature reserve, one of two juniper nature reserves in the area.
The resting place at the Vulcano path invites hikers to linger. The history of the "Drees" is documented on an illustrated board. Unfortunately, the fluoride-containing sodium magnesium calcium hydrogen carbonate acidulous water is not of drinking water quality.

The special feature of the well casing at the “Demerather Drees” is the mounted handle pump. Here you can pump approx. 8 degrees cold, mineral, carbonated and strongly ferrous water for refreshment.

As part of a measure of the Volcano Eifel Nature and Geopark, the spring and the forecourt were redesigned and made accessible.
The “Dreisborn” belongs to the municipality of Bettenfeld. A hike along the VulkaMaar path will take you close by.

Further information can be found in the brochure: "Dreese - Mineralwasser- und Kohlensäurequellen der Vulkaneifel".

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!
