    In addition to the small catering hut - delicious cake and fresh grilled sausages invite - a tour around the basalt lake should be included.

    Until the 1930s, the "Stone House" was a large, stony basaltic sea. The basalt columns towered up to 12 m. They were witnesses of the Rhön volcanism 30 to 10 million years ago. The deepest part of the crater left by basalt mining later filled up with water and the current lake was created. Today, the basalt lake with the "Stone House" is a popular destination. There is a car park, a kiosk and a barbecue station.

    Idyllic little lake was created when the basalt mining crater filled up after the basalt mining had ended

    The basalt lake is in the shady area of the tour. A beautiful beer garden invites you to linger.

    The basalt lake is a beautifully situated small lake that you can e.g. from the Roten Moor, over Heidelstein can be hiked well.
    There is also a kiosk and good rest areas 😉👍🏻
