      Vulkaneifel is a district (Kreis) in the northwest of the state Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. Neighboring districts are Euskirchen (North Rhine-Westphalia), Ahrweiler, Mayen-Koblenz, Cochem-Zell, Bernkastel-Wittlich, and Bitburg-Prüm.

      The district was created in 1815 when the Eifel became part of Prussia. As most of the local industries had their traditional markets in France, the district fell into a severe economic crisis. The construction of a railroad in the second half of the 19th century helped it to recover. The construction of the Nürburgring in 1927 was also an infrastructural project that helped the local economy. The district was enlarged significantly in 1970-71, when the districts Mayen and Prüm were dissolved and parts were added to the Daun district.  On January 1, 2007 the district Daun was renamed Vulkaneifel, the name of the landscape.
