German term or phrase: Maarglitzern
Weiche Hänge und bizarre Felsen, blaugrünes Maarglitzern und orangeroter Sandstein, eisige Höhlen und warme Quellen, weit oben der spitze Schrei des Bussards, unten im Tal das muntere Plätschern einer Quelle – die Vulkaneifel bietet ein facettenreiches Naturerlebnis auf kleinem Raum

Maar = tuff cone, mit dem Glitzern wird wohl das Wasser im Krater gemeint sein, aber wie soll man dies ausdrücken?
