Relight my fire! Scientists bring fake German volcano back to life...
For 200 years Europe's biggest, oldest and it's believed only man-made volcano has lain dormant in a decidedly un-volcanic region of eastern Germany.

I like that one.
Resembles the grotto with the swan boat in "Fairy castle" Bavaria, but with a mite more heat and a little less wagnerian background music.
For the genuine article try the W. Eiffel volcanic field (W. Germany), full of cinder cones & Maar lakes, some of them early Holocene, and the Laacher see (E. Eiffel Volcanic field) Phonolite caldera, of latest Pleistocene age, and a "gorgeous beauty" subject for volcanological scientific papers.
For a dormant example with royal connections try the Kaiserstuhl in the SW. part of the Rhine Graben. That one is responsible for the enormous heat flow of the region (no attempt to tap rift for geothermal heat yet, but used to produce a tiny amount of crude oil & gas from stewed & fried organics in the rift sediment).
Have a nice day: Ag
