Enjoy the diversity of nature on the forest wellbeing trail! The trail leads you into the unique landscape of the Volcanic Eifel around Lutzerath. A circular trail on which the hiker can feel good all around and at the same time bathe in the forest. Three "forest islands", equipped with cosy forest sofas, benches and hammocks, remind you to enjoy being outside and to feel at one with nature. The path starts at the 3-Eichenhütte and leads you to the forest island BuchenGlück. From there you have an unobstructed view of the green beech forest. Relax in the hammock and watch the passing clouds through the light treetops. Afterwards, take in the different smells of the forest in the forest island Waldduft, depending on the weather. Stop inside for a moment and enjoy the aromas of nature. At the end of the hike, the forest island Traumtal invites you to linger in the peaceful rushing valley of the Üßbach.

 

The hike is sufficiently signposted according to the logo of the forest wellbeing trail (Waldwohlfühlweg).

Highlights along the way:

• 0.5 km Forest Island BuchenGlück

• 2.2 km Forest Island Waldduft

• 3.6 km Forest Island Traumtal

Questions and answers

Question from Sylke Heisterhagen · March 13, 2021 · Community
Hallo! Ich würde gerne wissen, ob der Weg auch mit einem Rollstuhl befahrbar ist. Viele Grüße

Hallo Sylke, aktuell ist der Weg nicht durchgehend für Rollstuhlfahrer geeignet, da auf Grund von Baumrückarbeiten der Weg teilweise durch die Forstfahrzeuge stark uneben ist. Diese Arbeiten sollen voraussichtlich nach Ostern abgeschlossen werden. Es kann natürlich immer zu Verzögerungen kommen, weshalb wir dich bitten, dich vor Antritt des Weges bei der direkt vor Ort ansässigen Tourist Information Lutzerath zu informieren, ob der Weg wieder für Rollstuhlfahrer befahrbar ist.

Der erste Kilometer ist durch Rückearbeiten total zerstört und man stapft durch tiefe Furschen und Matsch. Danach wird der Weg gefälliger. Die Hängematten fehlen komplett. Keine besonderen Highlights auf der Strecke. Die Anfahrt hat sich nicht gelohnt!
