The Ulmener Acht runs for a total of 21 kilometres through the varied landscape of the Volcanic Eifel. Experience deep forests and narrow paths along babbling streams or enjoy the wide views over green valleys and the bird and nature reserve at the Jungferweiher area. Visit the romantic Eifel town of Ulmen on your way. There, the Ulmen Maar awaits you, the youngest maar in the Volcanic Eifel, with the Crusader Castle towering above it. From there you have a breathtaking view of the deep blue Maar and the idyllic Eifel town. To end the hike in a relaxed atmosphere, the gastronomic offer provides the opportunity for a cozy stop. The loops of the Ulmener Acht can be hiked individually and thus offer a shorter hiking experience: the Kleine Acht with 8 kilometres and the Große Acht with almost 14 kilometres can be hiked separately. Take your time and enjoy the scenic diversity of the Volcanic Eifel.

 

Highlights along the way:

• 0.7 km Jungferweiher
• 14.2 km Maismühle
• 19.3 km Ulmen Castle
• 19.5 km Ulmen Maar

Wenig Highlights auf 21 km, wenig abwechslungsreich, zu lang auf Schotterwegen, schöne Pfade oder Feldwege gibt es kaum.

Also positiv ist, dass die Tour wirklich sehr gut ausgeschildert ist!! Leider führte der Weg fast ausschließlich über geschotterte Forstwege, lediglich an dem Maar geht ein netter Wanderweg herum. Auch in den Ortschaften gingen wir an auffallend vielen schmucklosen Stein- Vorgärten vorbei. Dafür kann der Wanderweg natürlich nichts, aber schön ist es eben auch nicht. Auch landschaftlich hat uns die Runde nicht wirklich beeindruckt. Und zu etwa 75 Prozent der Gehzeit wurde das Wandern vom Verkehrslärm der Autobahn/ Bundesstraße begleitet. Zum Wandern kann ich die Tour also nicht weiterempfehlen, zum Fahrradfahren mag sie geeigneter sein!
