Kinder am Vulkanmodell im Eifel-Vukanmuseum Daun

The West Eifel volcanism has its center and highest expression in the Daun area. The museum shows three-dimensional landscape models of cinder cones, maars, mineral springs, information boards and exhibits on West Eifel volcanism.

The museum provides visitors with an up-close look at volcanic phenomena and activities, worldwide and in the Vulkaneifel.

A few hard steps on a pedal and red magma is pumped through a tube. A hissing and steaming sound emerges from a red-hot volcano and small white clouds rise. In this way, volcanologists young and old can understand the events that shook the Vulkaneifel thousands of years ago.

It's not just technically sophisticated, interactive models that elicit one or two "Oh!" from visitors to the Eifel Volcano Museum. Various exhibits from volcanoes, some of which are still active, bring the earth's history back to life. The connections between continental drift and the formation of the Hocheifel landscape are clearly explained on information boards. Three-dimensional models of cinder cones, maars and mineral springs provide deep insights into the otherwise hidden interior of the earth.

It's clear that the Eifel Volcano Museum is a must for anyone interested in geology. But it's also worth a visit for anyone who doesn't just want to swim in Maaren and hike over cinder cones. Because there is hardly a more informative and at the same time exciting introduction to your holiday in the Vulkaneifel.
