    At first gently rising, later relatively steeply rising to the basalt lake. This pays the effort further it goes to the corner head and then through pitoresque forests with partly sandy paths downhill towards Wachenheim. Mostly in the shade, what made it look enjoyable.

    Deep green basalt lake, the degradation was discontinued many years ago.

    The silent eye of the lake is food for the soul. Reminiscent of the lakes in the high Vosges.

    Beautiful, hidden place in a nature reserve. Perfect to unwind! Definitely a must during a hiking / biking trip in this area.

    Through the mining of basalt until the 1980s, two funnels were created, at the bottom of which two small lakes formed. One can go down well, the other is not accessible, as it has dangerous steep walls all around, it is also fenced. But you can look at some places in the 100-meter deep hole. This is the one in which you can go down and on whose surface there are beautiful reflections.

    A lake that you do not expect. Lies quiet and dreamy between forest and rocks. Worth seeing.

    Basalt lake is named because of its color.

    A great little lake. A really beautiful landscape that you should have seen.

    It's strange to find a lake somewhere on the mountain. If the light is right, a sanctuary for photographers.

    Swimming is not so good anymore, there are many water sprays and the water level has dropped a meter in the last two dry summers.
    (In addition, swimming is prohibited here)
    It's still good to cool your feet, and for geologists the place is also very interesting. The quarry was operated on two balsa vents, which had pushed through the Buntsandsteinschichten through.

    Beautiful little lake in the middle of the forest full of fish. Pure nature for a break.
