On the traces of the Celts.

The Vulcano information platform in Steineberg (currently closed) is impressive. Great panoramic views of the unique landscape of the Volcanic Eifel are offered there.

Starting at the volcano platform (currently closed) in Steineberg, which offers a breathtaking view over the beauty of the Volcanic Eifel, the circular trail leads us over plateaus down into the Üssbach valley. Through the juniper heath, one of the two juniper nature reserves in the area, we reach the Demerather Drees. Mineral, carbonated and highly ferrous water flows in this fountain. Unfortunately, it is not of drinking water quality. Varied stream valleys and great distant views accompany this challenging tour.

 

Shortcut via "Zuweg HeimatSpur Keltenrundweg" Demerath

Highlights along the way:

Einige schöne Abschnitte mit überragender Aussicht, besonders von der Vulcanoplattform in Steineberg. Daneben aber leider auch längere langweilige Abschnitte auf breiten und matschigen Waldwegen. Die GPX-Datei stimmt an einer Stelle nicht mit dem ausgeschilderten Weg überein.
