This section begins with impressive views of Meerfeld and the Maar from the Landesblick. For 3.5 km, the trail leads over the Eifelsteig and Lieserpfad. The hike through the forest is very varied, sometimes on narrow and sometimes on wider paths. First you walk along the Kleine Kyll and then along the Lieser to the Manderscheider castles. The rippling of the rivers is a constant companion and creates a very special atmosphere. Wonderful insights into the notch valleys of the Lieser and Kleiner Kyll as well as numerous magnificent far-reaching views.

 

Highlights along the way:

- Manderscheider castles- Museum of local history and the Maar, Manderscheid- Meerfeld Maar - Landesblick lookout tower, Meerfeld

Überhaupt kein Problem. Alle Sturm- und Flutschäden sind so weit beseitigt, dass man kaum noch etwas davon sieht.
