    Short but poisonous climb to the Malberg. Above you will be rewarded with the sight of the Malberg Chapel and the rock formations at the summit. When driving down, you can leave the forest path and use the "gutters" as a way.

    The Malberg is of volcanic origin and originated in the time of the Westerwald volcanism 18 to 25 million years ago. It is a dome made of phonolitic lava. In the past, phonolite, which was used in the glass industry, was mined here. On the western slope such a quarry is clearly visible.
    At the edge of the summit plateau are the remains of three prehistoric ring walls of Celtic origin. The oldest archaeologically secured settlement took place through the Celts in the middle of the first millennium before our era. In the first century BC Germanic tribes settled on the Malberg followed by a longer settlement break. For the Franconian period in the early Middle Ages, a use as a place of sacrifice and Thingplatz is suspected. [5] [4]
