The Karmelenberg is a wooded cinder cone that was formed by volcanic activity. It marks the southeastern end of the East Eifel volcano field and rises to a height of 372 m above sea level, about 170 metres above the Pellenz region, and is visible from a long way off.
In the UNO Year of Mountains, the Karmelenberg was Mountain/Hill of the Month in Germany. A monument records the proclamation on 21 June 2002.
As part of the Volcano Park, the hill is counted as a tourist attraction. Various information boards explain both its volcanic past as well as the history of St. Mary’s Chapel at the summit.
