The Michelsberg is with 588 meters above sea level the highest elevation in the area of the city of Bad Münstereifel.

The view to the southeast reaches far into the volcanic Eifel with Hoher Acht, Nürburg, Hochkelberg and Aremberg. To the west you look over the hills of the Limestone Eifel, which are characterised by agriculture, to the moors of the High Fens and the forests of the Eifel National Park.

The Michelsberg was already used by the Romans as a strategically located vantage point. Later it served the Franks as a pagan cult and court of law.

With the construction of a chapel around 1500, the mountain gained its importance as a place of pilgrimage for the worship of St. Michael and also its current name.
