In June this year a new volcanological pathway in German was opened to the public. It is called "Volcano experience path". Since then this pathway of 3,5 km was used by many groups of adults and children listening to the explanations of a geopark-guide. The small village of Strohn is now able to offer a complete geo-tourism package comprising the museum "Volcano house" for indoor and the new "Volcano experience path" for outdoor activities.

Volcanic rocks for children Felsberger

Children are fascinated by volcanic rocks. Geopark rangers take children into the quarried volcanoes and tell them the stories of igneous rocks. This is one of the special activities in the frame of "Geo for Kids".
