- As part of European Geoparks Week, a number of special events around geology, volcanism and natural history were presented. Among these was a volcanological seminar with the celebrated scientist Prof. Dr. H.-U. Schmincke, a ‘Long Night of the Museums’, and much more …
- In September the Deutsche Vulkanstraße (German Volcano Road) trail was opened. This 280 kilometre driving trail connects 39 points of special geological interest.
- A research project in cooperation with the University of Jena and supported by the EU-Interreg IIIB programme provided new insights into volcano-structure and genesis. In Vulkaneifel a hitherto unknown complex-volcano (likely a maar in the middle of three or four surrounding cinder cones) was discovered in 2006.
