The name says it all: the BULLS Achterbahn - roller coaster mountain bike route captivates with its varied ups and downs through the dreamy valleys and ridges of the Hocheifel.

The well-signposted tour starts at the exit of the historic town of Adenau, at the Breuer cycling shop. The place is briefly touched and the route dips into the dense mixed forest landscape of the Hocheifel. At first the route is rather gentle with small climbs, but after a good 12 km the route becomes sportier and more demanding with increasing ascents and descents. Magnificent views and light-flooded forest passages alternate and are characteristic of the rapid roller coaster ride.

As the grand finale of the tour, just behind the "Hohe Acht" hiking car park, there is a detour to the Kaiser Wilhelm Tower on the Hohe Acht: In exchange for another 100 meters more in the legs, the fantastic view from the highest vantage point in the Eifel compensates for all the efforts of the day. Take a deep breath - pause and enjoy. Partly steep, partly easy downhill, the last 5 km back to the starting point then run almost by itself.

The figurative figure of eight of the tour also gives the opportunity to experience the route in 2 shorter individual stages from / to Leimbach.
