The Schalkenmehrerener Maar is the southernmost and the largest of the 3 Dauner Maare. East of Lake Maar is still a dry maar. It is one of the rare Doppelmaare and only about 10,000 years old. There is a very nice circuit around the Maar. In the south is the village Schalkmehren with Refreshments.

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 maares is 420.8 m above sea level. NHN  (mean water level). It fills the younger of the two Maarkessel. The eastern part of the Maars is occupied by a moor.
