    Although there are many indications that the Rodder Maar has probably no volcanic origin. The right volcanic ejections are simply missing and there are no magnetic signatures either. It is therefore assumed that the depression was created by a meteorite impact.On the circular route around the Rodder Maar, you will quickly forget the question of origin and admire the wonderful landscape, the great light and the abundant animal and plant life in the here and now.

    The ensemble of "Maar" and castle in the background is definitely a great photo opportunity. Especially when the sun is low.

    Pure relaxation around the Rodder Maar. Flat, wide paths and benches to linger in peace on one side and space to play and run around on the other side of the maar await you. When the sun shines over Olbrück Castle in the afternoon, you are rewarded with this fantastic view.

    Always a highlight. We have been there in the snowy winter and at all other times of the year. This time the round from Oberzissen, Olbrück Königssee Rodder Maar to Oberzissen. Since many benches are placed there, even my disabled husband can make the circuit around the lake.

    The Rodder Maar is a nature reserve and offers many waterfowl a protected retreat.

    For the changeful history of the Rodder Maar see

    The maar was renatured from 1996 to 1999. The Olbrück castle ruins are the landmark of the Brohl valley. The view of the castle with the maar in the foreground is most beautiful from the Eifel ladder.
