  • Haus Hinneres

    The Schalkenmehrener Maar was named after the village Schalkenmehren and is located about 3 km southeast of Daun.
    It belongs to the Dauner Maaren and is a Doppelmaar, consisting of the western Maarsee and the eastern Trockenmaar. Both were created about 10,500 years ago after a volcanic steam explosion. The lake in the western part of the Maars varies in diameter between 500 and 575 m and is up to 21 m deep. The height of the mare above sea level is 420 m (average water level). It fills the younger of the two Maarkessel. The eastern part of the Maars is occupied by a moor. The water surface is 21.6 ha.
    Fishing, swimming, boating and surfing are allowed there. In the bathing season, a visit to the natural recreational bath Schalkenmehrener Maar is worthwhile. Here water lovers will find the desired cooling on hot summer days.
