A unique circular hiking trail that combines many special features and highlights of the "Eyes of the Eifel".

On a pleasant and varied 11 km, you not only see the water-filled maars, but also the fen and the dry maar at Schalkenmehren.

Looking over the Daun maars, it becomes clear: there must have been a lot of rumbling here!

Where once volcanoes spewed lava and ash, today gentle green hills and deep blue maars invite you to experience the effect of the incomparable landscape.

There are excellent places to stop for refreshments in Schalkenmehren and Gemünden.

Insider tip: Enjoy the view of the fairytale Gemünden Maar from the Hollywood swing next to the drone tower! 

The hike is adequately signposted according to the "MA" logo.

 

Highlights along the way:

  • 0.3 km Schalkenmehren maar
  • 2.2 km Schalkenmehren Maar cross
  • 2.9 km Weinfeld Maar
  • 4.5 km Dronke tower
  • 5.4 km Gemünden Maar
  • 7.5 km Winkelbach mineral spring

Eine schöne Tour mit einigen interessanten Steigungen. Die Schaukel am Dronketurm erlaubt einen wunderschönen Blick auf das Gemündener Maar. Allein dieser Blick ist die Tour wert.
