Schalkenmehren is one of the most popular vacation spots in the volcanic Eifel area. Created by a volcano 10,000 to 14,000 years ago, the eruption left behind three crater lakes, romantically located right next to each other. Nowhere is the drama of the volcanic activity in such a harmonious landscape as visible. Schalkenmehren itself has 600 inhabitants, but can point to about 80,000 tourist nights spent here. 5 local restaurants offer something for every taste. The larger hotel in town offers a 900 m2 spa, and another hotel is a little smaller. In the summer, many water activities can be experienced in the lake itself. The Maare - Mosel bike path leads comfortably up to the Moselle, where millennia-old vineyards and idyllic places and restaurants are to be found. Hikers can walk along the Eifel trail, which allows for multi-directional, day-long hikes. Almost every place around has something to offer. Due to its location and natural beauty, Schalkenmehren is, in the opinions of many thousands of holidaymakers, the most beautiful location in the most ideal position.

You should definitely hike the three Maare, whether only one or all three in combination. Another very nice trip is to Cochem on the Moselle (about 30 minutes away by car). Manderscheid with its two ruined castles is also worthwhile. Around Schalkenmehren, there are many hiking trails. The apartment properties provide many materials about further destinations.

Schalkenmehren is a tourist in an attractive rural location, right on the Schalkenmehrener maar lake, with many recreational opportunities. See more information: www.schalkenmehren.de / recreation / index.htm We recommend a visit to the Brockscheid bell foundry. I hope to have helped with this. Sincerely, Irmgard Buchholz

More about the History of Schalkenmehren

In 1920, a young teacher named Anna Droste-Lehnert tavelled to the Eifel village. She noticed that the Eifel farmers were very poor, and that they were able to weave beautiful fabrics called "Maartuch". She convinced the weavers to form a cooperative and thus the Schalkenmehrener came to be. From its first inception, the next 30 years the cooperative was very successful, and was even one of the companies that thrived in the post-war era.
