    The small headland of the Jägerspitze is an ideal place for a picnic at any time of the day.
    In the morning the Maria Laach Abbey shines in the first light and in the evening you can watch the sunset ...
    There is a resting place and enough space to spread out the picnic blanket brought along by the trees near the lake shore ...

    The outgassing of carbon dioxide can be easily recognized and heard.
    A plaque explains this natural spectacle.

    It bubbles and bubbles and smells a bit musty too. Here mainly CO2 rises, but the rise of gases indicates that volcanism has not yet been extinguished.

    It is a pleasure to interrupt your hike here to sit on the stones on the shore, dip your feet in the water and let your gaze wander over the lake to the Maria Laach Abbey on the opposite side.
    There is also a rest area with a table and benches.

    There is an information board that explains the process of CO2 leakage from the ground and points out the volcanic heritage.

    Here it is worthwhile, just to watch the sunset, or to rest a little

    The lake and the monastery are definitely worth the trip. The lake is unique in Germany of its kind. The monastery also impresses with its gardening and forge.

    You can see, hear and smell them. Impressive, the lake and the traces of volcanic activity. Very exciting. In addition, the monastery with everything in it such as blacksmiths and horticulture, definitely worth a visit.
