Highlight is the rectangular tower with the beautifully decorated clock. The market square in front of the Town Hall has always been centre of Mayen. In its centre is the Market Fountain, erected by Micheal Alken.more
What an unusual church. Take a closer look on the spire and you notice that it has an uneven shape. The legend tells that the devil twisted the spire. But the fact is that during the construction strong winds made it almost impossible to built the heavy schist plates in an even form.The chruch is located in the centre of Mayen and is the landmark...more

What to buy:
many ask what is the Mineralwater like in Germany......I can only say: it is just delish.
and the Eifel is the Region who has these deep wells, Apollinaris in the Maria Laach Region, I talked about in my Germany page,
Gerolsteiner is an other great product from the Eifel.....actually just 20km from Mayen, in the Neighbourhood of Daun, close to the Nuerburgring
so when ever you need to quench a thirst, while driving perhaps, buy yourself a bottle of Apollinaris or Gerolsteiner, german Mineralwater of high quality and great taste
of the Eifel Region, the volcanic lakes, all in all 4, when I count Maria Laach in ....have a look at this page.
around Mayen and Daun, here the Rodder Maar, an area of breathtaking peace and serenity.
a holiday for the whole family, hiking or biking sure a great expirience for natur lovers

This lava was made of molten basalt and has a height of up to 35 meters. The slow cooling process formed such hexagonal and pentagonal pillars which were used...more
This museum deals with the vulcanism in the Eifel and the results of giant eruptions. The guided tour is very informative and you can get insight in the life of the past hundred years when people tried to get round basalt stones out of the cooled off lava. Those stones were used in mills to grind grains. The mill stone is the only object that has...more
