When a 9.0-magnitude earth quake shook the Japanese east coast in 2011, the power supply of the Fukushima nuclear power plant was destroyed. There was an impending nuclear disaster that would even overshadow Chernobyl. The answer to the question whether Germany, too, is threatened by seismic dangers can be found in the Eifel. The green recreation area is the region with the highest volcano concentration in the world. And when volcano eruptions in Central Europe often date back millions of years, it is merely 10,000 years in the Eifel – just a blink in geology. The volcano is dormant – and the ground of the Eifel is still bubbling.
