Hiking Highlight (Segment)
From the parking lot between the Weinfelder Maar and the Schalkenmehrener Maar, a path climbs up to the Dronketurm on Mäuseberg. There you have a panoramic view that extends to the Hunsrück in good weather. You can also see all three Maare from here - Weinfelder, Gemündener and Weinfelder Maar. Reason enough to take a short break here.

From the Dronketurm on the Mäuseberg you will definitely be rewarded with a direct view of the Gemündener Maar, which is worth a trip in every season. The platform on which the tower is located is ideal for enjoying the breathtaking view for a little longer and taking a breather in the wooden benches and loungers built for it.
The Adolf Dronke Tower on the 561 meter high Mäuseberg was erected in 1902 as a memorial to Dr. Adolf Dronke, who founded the Eifel Association in 1888. From this approximately 11 meter high observation tower, you have a wonderful panoramic view of the wide volcanic landscape of Eifel. Its viewing platform is exactly 166.5 meters above the Gemündener Maar.
If you walk a bit over the plateau, you have an impressive view of the Weinfelder Maar, which is also called Totenmaar, from the side opposite the Dronketurm.

From up here you have a wonderful panoramic view of the Vulkaneifel and the surrounding maars.
Another highlight are the free-roaming donkeys that greet you up here after the ascent (from the Weinfelder Maar).
There is also a swing seat with a view of the Gemündener Maar.
