Dronketurm

Daun

Share content:

When you visit the Weinfelder Maar, you should also climb up to the nearby Mäuseberg. Because in the middle of it towers the Dronketurm, which was built at the beginning of the 20th century. If you climb the steps of the eleven-meter-high tower, you will be rewarded: At the top, a wonderful view awaits you of the Gemünden Maar, which slumbers far below surrounded by beech forest in the valley, and of the impressive landscape of the volcanic land around the three Daun Maars.

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!
