The Kurschattensteig leads you along romantic vantage points around Bad Bertrich - with breathtaking views over the Volcanic Eifel. Always far enough away from the village, but still mostly with visual contact, you will reach the most beautiful viewpoints via soft forest paths and narrow, almost alpine trails. You can divide the trail into 2 stages. After the first descent, a short walk through the village will bring you back to the starting point and you can comfortably continue the hike at another time. In Bad Bertrich there are numerous places to stop for a break. The Landscape Therapeutic Park with its 7 themed gardens is highly recommended. These can have a particularly calming effect. The "Kurgarten", which shines with full bloom in spring and summer, is also worth a detour!

 

Highlights along the way:

  • 2.3 km Mooshütte
    4.1 km Swan pond
    5.2 km Hohenzollern tower
    5.8 km Panoramic view

Der Kurschattensteig hat zwei knackige Anstiege, weshalb man die Tour durchaus als schwer bezeichnen kann. Es geht überwiegend angenehm durch ruhige Natur und schattigen Wald. Die Aussichtspunkte geben immer nur den Blick auf Bad Bertrich frei, sind aber sehr schön. Die Beschilderung ist weniger gut. Ruhebänke sind ausreichend vorhanden. Insgesamt ist die Tour zu empfehlen.
