    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.

    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.

    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.
