    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.

    Awesome view from the Dronkenturm, although the spiral staircases are quite narrow.

    From the tower you have a great view of the Dauner Maare. Another highlight are the free-roaming donkeys, who are already waiting for the visitors after the climb. Definitely worth seeing

    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.

    The swing bench offers a beautiful view of the Gemündener Maar. In the area around the Weinfelder Maar goats are on the way, which can be partially caressed.
