Ettringen's townscape is characterized by volcanic rock, which was mined here especially during the industrialization period in the last century. The landmark of the village with more than 2,720 inhabitants is the Hochsimmerturm. But also the volcanic park stations "Ettringer Lay" and "Ettringer Bellerberg" are known beyond the region and offer fascinating insights into the history of the region.
