Volcanoes and the creation of the Maares: The Eifel´s Maare are a real geographical 'highlight'. They are the remnants of volcanic activity that ended just 10,000 years ago. The creation of the Maare is still not fully explained. According to Lorenz Joerg F.W. Negendank, the Maare are the result of violent steam explosions, caused by hot lava rising up and meeting layers of groundwater. According to recent sources, the Maare in the county of Daun were created about 10,000 to 30,000 years ago.
The Maare: The Weinfeldermaar (=Totenmaar) is 16.8 hectares in size, 525 m wide and 51 m deep. A nature reserve and the old Weinfeld parish chapel, now the cemetery chapel of the village of the same name, which was wiped out during the plague which ravished in the 16th century.
