Laacher See

Lake Laach

Lake Laach is located in the Volcanic Eifel near Maria Laach Abbey. It is the largest lake in Rhineland-Palatinate. The last eruption of the former Laach volcano took place about 13,000 years ago. Today, the Laacher See nature reserve is a paradise for recreation seekers and water sports enthusiasts!
