Lava-Dome Mendig and Volcano Museum













Tremendous eruptions of the volcanoes in the Osteifel area have created a unique landscape. A guided tour through Lava-Dome Mendig and Volcano Museum offers a vivid experience of all aspects of volcanism. A visit to the spectacular underground lava cellars shows you how local people used the volcanic rock through the centuries both for building material and (more importantly) for storing their excellent beer.

The temperature in the lava cellars is a constant 6-9 degrees Celsius. Please bring adequate clothes and sturdy shoes.
