“Floating over a sleeping vulcano… Swimming at Laacher See in Germany felt so insane!”

During my road trip through Germany we decided to hire an boat so we could float over Laacher See. It was so insane to float over a sleeping vulcano. The caldera of Laacher See was formed after the Laacher volcano erupted, between 12,900 and 11,200 years ago. It’s a beautiful lake.

The Laacher is still considered to be an active volcano, proven by seismic activities and heavy thermal anomalies under the lake. Amazing, isn’t it?
