Tips

    The Laacher See is by far the most famous and largest lake in Germany with volcanic origin. Just a stone's throw to the west is almost 1,000 years old the abbey of Maria Laach, which is the home of Benedictine monks. At the lake and in the abbey there are several good possibilities to stop off. On weekends with nice weather, it can be a bit crowded around the lake.

    There are many places on Laacher See where you can discover mofettes. In my opinion, most of them are in this section. Have fun marveling and listening. Listening was what fascinated me most.

    Beautifully situated, the volcanic lake is always worth a visit; as well as the nearby monastery. In the parking lot nearby you can park all day for 2 euros.

    At this point you can see the gas outlet particularly well. But the shore itself is beautiful. Think of the picnic blanket and take a break here ...

    Rustic resting place which is a bit off the main route to the lake ...
    There is enough space between the trees to spread more picnic blankets.
    The lake shore is also only a few meters away.

    Here one notices impressively, that under the Laacher lake the volcanism does not sleep.

    Beautifully situated, the volcanic lake is always worth a visit; as well as the nearby monastery. In the parking lot nearby you can park all day for 2 euros. The farm shop is also worth a visit, you will find delicious things for a break.
