    Pulvermaar natural swimming pool:
    Extensive meadows, surrounded by forest and maar lake, await you with 2500 berths.

    In addition to the access to the maar, the facility offers a non-swimmer and a paddling pool for the very young.

    Swimming in the crystal clear water. A boon for nature lovers or those who just want to have fun.
    Anyone who has ever stood on the 3-meter board of the bathing island in the open water defines the height anew.
    Unobstructed view to the bottom in calm water ... unique.

    There is chlorine-free bathing pleasure in the swimming pools. The water is constantly circulated and comes directly from the powder maar itself. The fresh water is taken from a depth of around three meters near the shore.

    Weinfeld (in the 11th century, Winelde, in the 14th century Wyneveldt, etymologically possibly derived from "sacred field") is a deserted settlement at the vineyard Maar in the volcanic Eifel 2.5 kilometers southeast of Daun.
    The place Weinfeld must have been significant, because the parish Weinfeld belonged in the 15th century also the places Mehren, Schalkenmehren, Saxler and Udler as well as three houses in Gemünden, which stood on the left of the Lieser. The population of the village was in the Middle Ages but migrated because of distress, fire or war or died of the plague. The place was completely abandoned until the year 1562 and the houses were used over the years by the inhabitants of the neighboring villages as a quarry. From the eponymous village of Weinfeld is now only the church dedicated to St. Martin in their cemetery, where even today the inhabitants of Schalkenmehren are buried. It is one of the oldest churches in the Eifel, the earliest foundations date back to Roman times, as can be seen on their herringbone pattern. Maybe there was already a Celtic sanctuary at this point. (Source: wikipedia)

    The church belongs to the cemetery of the municipality Schalkenmehren. It is custom to ring the bells after a silent prayer as you leave the church. The numerous thank you boards make you ponder and make you think.

    Why not even calm and reflective. This place slows down!

    At this location, a historic chapel testifies that there was once a village. The chapel is the last relic of this desert - that's what geography is called settlements that no longer exist today.

    The lonely chapel is all that is left of a village.
    Very pretty with a graveyard.

    The entire area around the Maar is fenced and donkeys and goats run into one! Beautiful, especially if you have children with you!
