Hike on the Eifelsteig during the day and indulge in regional delicacies in the evening. Short stages but still a full experience - from Birresborn to Manderscheid, part of the premium trail can be explored with pleasure in this way. The scent of the wide meadows and dense forests invigorates the senses. The people who live here are as deeply rooted as the trees. They are closely connected with their region, with nature. Rocks stand steadfastly at the edge of the road, streams and rivers have created their beds drop by drop over millions of years. Everyone takes their time here - people and nature alike. Once there was a boiling point in the Eifel, the earth was in motion and streams of lava poured over the landscape. The maars bear witness to this eventful, fiery volcanic past, the power and energy can be felt. The water is clear and pure, the maars peacefully tell you their story and accompany you on your way.

 

Highlights along the way:

  • Lindenquelle
  • Mausefallenmuseum Neroth
  • Maare der Vulkaneifel

Übersetzungsergebnisse

 The path leads you partly through an almost mystical backdrop of deciduous and mixed forest with ancient trees, partly through open terrain over plateaus, volcanic cones and valleys.

The Eifelsteig is continuously marked with the Eifelsteig logo on sight. The trailblazing signage is based on the quality standards of the Rhineland-Palatinate hiking trail guide and shows main, sub and local destinations for orientation.
