The idyllically situated "Morswiesener Weiher" in the contemplative Eifel town of Hausten-Morswiesen is a gem for all nature lovers.

A real insider tip!

A total of 6,000 square meters of bog and marsh area have been transformed here into a true natural paradise over the past few years.

The tenant of the area - Erich Klapperich - is pleased about every visitor who appreciates his laborious work and wants to enjoy peace and relaxation in nature.

Erich Klapperich was honored for his activities by, among others, Volksbank RheinAhrEifel with a special prize in the "Zukunftspreis Heimat" competition and RWE as "Hero of everyday life".

Take a walk in this small parkland and watch the ducks rearing their young.

Be enchanted by the beautiful flower meadow or the fragrant herb garden.

Learn more about the characteristic rocks of the region.

Can you select selected typical tree species on a wooden disc? After a visit to the "Poor's pond", as he is lovingly called by the locals, you are guaranteed to be able to.

Numerous seating options also invite hikers and cyclists to rest and linger.

In short, an excellent way to escape from everyday life and recharge your batteries in a place of tranquility.

• From Weibern follow the L 83 in the direction of Nettetal, exit of Hausten- 
  Morswiesen, on the left.
• From Mayen, just before Hausten-Morswiesen turn right into a dirt road that leads to
  the pond.

Klosterruine Mädburg Kehrig

The monastery ruins "Mädburg" at Kehrig Not far from the confluence of the monastery creek that rises in Kehrig, the Elz flows around a small plateau about 20 m above the valley floor, bounded on the northwest by a rocky steep slope. Here are world-secluded between tall spruce trees and surrounded by thorny scrub, the extensive remains of a small church, which leads to the strange name Mädburg.
