August 15, 2018
On your last hiking day our round hike will take you through the Mürmes. There you can admire another volcanic landscape form. The Mürmes was once a huge maar. The lake partially seeped and left a lush, rustic moor landscape. In the past, peat was stung on the wet meadows, but now the moorland is under nature protection. Here you can observe numerous birds and marvel at rare plants. Afterwards it goes along the Dauner Maaren back to Daun.From Ellscheid you walk along fields and meadows to Mürmes. A rustic trail leads you along the northern edge of the moor. From here you have a nice view over the nature reserve and you can clearly see the kettle shape. After you have rounded the Mürmes, you cross the highway on a bridge and continue across fields to Schalkenmehren.In Schalkenmehren, you can take a break in one of the inns and cafés and then continue your walk with fresh strength. The trail leads you along the southern shore of the Schalkenmehrer Maars and up to the Totenmaar. Above the lakeshore, it goes steadily uphill to the summit of Mäuseberg. Up here is an old, stone lookout tower, the founder of the Eifelverein Dr. Eifel. Adolf Dronke is dedicated. From Dronketurm you can enjoy a great view of the Dauner Maare and in the north you can clearly see the Ernstberg. From Mäuseberg follow the path to Daun.At the end of your voyage of discovery through the volcanic history of the Eifel, you can start your journey home in Daun. With the RegioBuslinie 500 it goes daily to the stations Cochem or Gerolstein. From there you can then go home by train.Timetable information is available at vrt-info.de.
