Eifelsteig

Rocky terrain, water, forests and a terrific cultural landscape accompany you on the 313 kilometre long Premium Hiking Trails from Aachen to Trier. The Eifelsteig can be hiked in stages or completely over several days.

The four Eifelsteig stages in the North Eifel:

  •  Between Einruhr and Gemünd (21 km) on rocky paths around the reservoirs and later through the grounds of the former “NS Ordensburg” Vogelsang
  • Between Gemünd and Kloster Steinfeld (17.5 km) the scenery is a mixture of forest, panoramic views, valley and hilly trails
  • From Kloster Steinfeld onwards the trail leads past valley riverbanks und wetlands, with rare plants and colourful butterflies through Nettersheim to Blankenheim (22.5 km)
  • The stage from Blankenheim to Mirbach (17.5 km) leads through the heights of Blankenheim, the Schafbachtal and the high plains around Ripsdorf and the Lampertstal.
