The path was named after Saint Apollonia, who is also the patron saint of the tranquil village of Winkel.

The hike starts in Niederwinkel and leads to the nearby village of Oberwinkel. The path climbs steeply past meadows and fields. The trail then descends to the Geisert juniper heath nature reserve along the Dreisbach. The following forest passage is perfect for a little forest bath. The demanding ascent to the Tommelberg can then be tackled in a relaxed manner. The hike then ends with a return to Niederwinkel.

 

 

Highlights along the way:

4.8 Juniper heath

Questions and answers

Question from Jennifer Dreßen · June 21, 2021 · Community
ist diese Tour Kinderwagen tauglich?
show more
Hallo Jennifer, vielen Dank für deine Anfrage. Der Weg ist für einen Kinderwagen breit genug, denn er verläuft hauptsächlich über naturbelassene Wege, teilweise auch über Schotterabschnitte. Steilere Auf- und Abstiege sind auch enthalten, die kannst du dir im Höhenprofil nochmal genauer ansehen. Und den Kinderwagen müsstest du an der ein oder anderen Brücke evtl. auch mal anheben. Ich hoffe, ich konnte dir weiterhelfen. Sonst kannst du dich auch jederzeit gerne telefonisch melden unter 06592/9513-0. Alles Gute und bleib gesund! Viele Grüße dein Team vom GesundLand Vulkaneifel

Leichter Weg ohne große Highlights, aber schön zu gehen. Gute Wege, gute Beschilderung.

Ca. 14 Kilometer langer Rundweg ohne besondere Höhepunkte. Bei Start in Niederwinkel und Wanderung im Uhrzeigersinn bietet der erste Abschnitt noch einige schöne Ausblicke. Ab dem „Naturschutzgebiet“ Demerath verläuft der Weg dann aber nur noch auf breiten und teils sehr matschigen Wegen durch Wald und Wiesen.
