Laacher Lake

Laacher Lake lies at the center of the young volcanic region of the Eastern Eifel. The lake’s surface, about two kilometers wide and three kilometers long, has a magical attraction for many people. Carbon dioxide is constantly emitted at the water’s surface along the eastern shore of the lake, a phenomenon known as mofettes. The 50-meter-tall Wingertsberg wall is the site of the most powerful volcano eruption in Central Europe in recent geological history, about 13,000 years ago. Laacher Lake is about 32 km from our hotel.
