The Kirmutscheid parish church of St. Wendelinus sits idyllically at the starting point of the 14-kilometre-long panorama trail around Pomster and Barweiler.
Accompanied by the babbling Trierbach stream, the route leads to the viewing platform of the Dörferblick loop just before Pomster. The magnificent distant view offers the observer a wonderful view over the varied Eifel landscape with the striking Aremberg (623 m), 12 picturesque villages and the once mighty Nürburg castle ruins on Mons Nore, the black mountain (678 m). A bench invites you to take a short rest.
Tranquil villages, dreamy meadow valleys and colourful mixed forests reflect the unspoilt nature of the Eifel along the entire route.

 

Highlights along the way:   

  • St. Wendelinus parish church in Kirmutscheid
  • Viewing platform Dörferblick-Schleife near Pomster
  • Marian pilgrimage church of St. Gertrud in Barweiler

Turn-by-turn directions

The parish church of St. Wendelinus in Kirmutscheid sits idyllically at the starting point of the 14-kilometre-long Panorama Trail around Pomster and Barweiler.Accompanied by the babbling Trierbach stream, the route leads through the small village of Kirmutscheid, which has only a few houses, into a coppice forest of oaks and hornbeams. Surrounded by the natural silence, the hiker is led along a gently ascending forest path to the wooden viewing platform of the panoramic view just before Pomster. The magnificent distant view offers the observer a wonderful view over the varied Eifel landscape with the striking Aremberg (623 m), 12 picturesque villages and the once mighty ruins of Nürburg Castle on Mons Nore, the black mountain (678 m). A bench invites you to take a short rest.The circular route continues through the village of Pomster. Here, in village tranquillity, you will find charming quarry stone and half-timbered houses next to the small historic chapel.Through meadow valleys and mixed forest, you pass ant colonies and enter the natural floodplain of the Wenigbach. The crossing of the Wenigbach takes place over stepping stones. After heavy rain, the crossing can be somewhat difficult. Wet feet are possible! Once again, the natural silence is captivating and guides the hiker further through open meadows, fields and hedgerow landscapes past the Roßbach up gently to Barweiler. Here it is worth visiting the pilgrimage church of St. Gertrud, before the path leads through a beautiful avenue and varied Eifel nature, offering a wonderful view of the Kirmutscheid church and thus back to the starting point.

Die Tour ist ok, ohne großartige Highlights zu bieten. Größtenteils breitere Wald-/Feldwege, Ausschilderung ausreichend.

Wir sind diese Tour bei wunderschönen Spätsommerwetter gelaufen. Eine sehr empfehlenswerte Wanderung, die gut zu bewältigen ist. Besonders Pomster ist ein sehr idyllischer Ort in der Eifel, der sehenswert ist. Ein bisschen schade, dass ab der Schleife hinter Pomster der gleiche Weg wieder zurück zur Kapelle geht.
