    The Schalkenmehrerener Maar is the southernmost and the largest of the three Dauner Maare. To the east of the Maarsee is a dry Maar. So it is one of the rare double mare and only around 10,000 years old. There is a very nice circular route around the Maar. In the south is the village of Schalkmehren with refreshments.

    It belongs to the Dauner Maaren (or to the Dauner (Maar) group) 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 maares is 420.8 m above sea level. NHN [1] (mean water level). It fills the younger of the two Maarkessel. The eastern part of the Maars is occupied by a moor.

    There is a circular path that goes almost directly along the shore and is paved and a higher circular path which also offers shadows in sections.

    The maar can be circumnavigated on flat paths in less than an hour. So ideal as a walk or jogging route.
