Hikers like narrow pathways, unspoilt natural trails (leading over the forest floor, across the grass or alongside streams) and rocky climbs which lead to spectacular views. It goes without saying that particular care should be exercised when taking such routes.
Things to bear in mind when preparing for your hike
- Wear proper clothing that is appropriate to the weather conditions and that will protect you against the cold and the wet or the heat and the sun.
- Schedule suitable breaks during your hike and make sure that you conserve energy.
- Take sufficient liquids with you. Establishments selling refreshments are not available everywhere.
- When hiking on the Traumpfade, please wear appropriate hiking boots which provide a sufficient foothold on slippery, steep, rocky and uneven paths.
- If you do not feel that you are able to negotiate certain parts of the route, then you should avoid such sections or else turn back. Natural pathways may become muddy and treacherous, especially in unfavourable weather.
- In autumn in particular, please remember that leaves lying on the ground may be concealing bumps, routes, stones or holes in the path.
- You will need to expect route impairments of this kind if you are intending to undertake a hike.
- Before setting out, visit https://www.traumpfade.info/traumpfaedchen/wege-status/ in order to find out whether the route you intend to hike is closed or whether diversions are in place. Construction works, timber felling or other disruptions may also be planned.
- Recommended hiking season: April to October

The Traumpfädchen Langscheider Wacholderblick begins at the car park of the Wacholderhütte in Langscheid at the top of a short path leading up to the inn itself. The recommendation is that the tour should be completed in an anti-clockwise direction (better lines of sight). We therefore begin by ascending past the inn on the same route used by the Wacholderweg Traumpfad. Our first juniper trees and lush heather spread themselves across the side of the Wabelsberg to provide a degree of Nordic flair.
Once we reach the edge of the forest, a pathway leads off to the right and into the realm of the juniper! Aromatic trees are tightly packed along a route which takes us to the first shelter on the tour. The path continues to wend its way downwards through quaint pine and juniper woodland. We briefly emerge into a small clearing where we are able to enjoy attractive views out towards the Nette Valley from the comfort of a bench.
The path ends at a crossroads (where the Traumpfad departs off to the left), and we now turn left to follow an easy trail through the sparse trees. The woods soon give way to an enjoyable meadowland section which offers lovely views of our surroundings. When we go back into the woods, the route bends sharply to the right and proceeds uphill. Things become a little strenuous for a brief period as a tarmac path crosses our trail, but the meadow pathway cushions our steps and we make short work of the small mountain we are climbing. A lounger offering magnificent panoramic views is waiting to reward us once we reach the top! As we take in the far-reaching vistas, our attention is constantly drawn by the striking cone-shaped mountains of the Volcanic Eifel.
Finally, we continue our hike. We turn to the west (rejoining the Traumpfad) and make our way along the edge of the forest. As the Traumpfad turns off to the right, the Traumpfädchen heads left and completes its lap around the mountain top by crossing a small wood. Once we reach the other side of the wood, our tour continues to the right. We have now permanently rejoined the route of the Traumpfad. Our pathway is now flanked by meadows and woodland as it gently descends to a rest area. Here we turn right onto a tarmac path, on which we remain after the next crossroads. We now find ourselves on the side of the Wabelsberg once more and take the next turning to the left in order to approach the juniper heathland again. The Wacholderhütte is quickly reached, and our tour is over all too quickly. Before returning to the car park, we can enjoy refreshments either inside or out on the idyllic summer terrace depending on the weather conditions.
