    At the Gemündener Maar you will find a cozy natural outdoor pool - making it the only one of the Dauner Maare to bathe in. There are large lawns, a non-swimmer pool and a diving tower.

    The outdoor pool is open daily from May to September from 11am to 7pm. In midsummer, from the end of July to the end of August, it even opens from 10 am to 8 pm.

    Adults pay € 3.50 and children € 2.50.

    If you're wondering, what is a maar - here's the answer: A maar was formed by a volcanic eruption when magma flows from the Earth's interior towards the surface of the earth. Explosion-like evaporation of groundwater created a crater that later filled with water.

    The Gemündener Maar is about 38 meters deep and is located 1.5 kilometers from Daun. Should you come over here in the summer, take a swimsuit with you, because unlike the other maaren to Daun here is the swimming allowed and there is even a natural swimming pool.

    The Gemündener Maar is the northernmost of the 3 Dauner Maarseen and is closest to the city. At this Maar is a very nice natural outdoor pool and it may be bathed. The entrance fee in 2016 is 3.50 euros and there is even a diving tower and a boat rental.

    "Dense beech forest, which makes the sound of black and gray woodpeckers sound evenly, covers the steep slopes of the Gemündener Maars. The deeply wooded funnel has an almost mystical aura.
    Coming from the Weinfelder Maar over the Eifelsteig, the view from the top opens onto the Maar, which is 150 m lower - a breathtaking scenery in dark blue and fresh green. In autumn, the forest shines, between leaves and deadwood thrive fascinating mushrooms.

    Opening hours:
    bathing season
    May - September, daily 11:00 - 19:00 (weather permitting)
    from 27th of July daily 10:00 - 20:00 (weather permitting)

    Ticket prices:
    Adults: 3,50 €
    Children up to 16 years, pupils, students: 2,50 €
    Kurkarteinhaber, severely handicapped, seniors over 65 years: 2.50 €
    From 17:00 50% discount on single tickets

    Those who are brave may dive headfirst in the outdoor pool, even from a diving tower that is up to 7.5 m high. Take a rest on the sufficient lying areas, splash around with your child in the non-swimmer pool or treat yourself to a break in the kiosk. Also by boat, the Maar can be discovered with its reed beds and rooted Flachufern. Fish will only show up with good luck, because the low nutrient content makes the water worth living only for a few species. "Source: eifel.info/a-freibad-gemuendener-maar-1

    The maar lake of the Gemündener Maar is around 325 m long, 300 m wide and a maximum of 38 m deep. This makes it the smallest of the three Dauner Maars.
    In the bathing season (May to September), a visit to the Gemündener Maar natural swimming pool is definitely worthwhile for water lovers. Here you can find the desired cooling on hot summer days.
