Eifel-Blick "Weißer Stein"
At 687 meters above sea level, the "White Stone" is the highest point in the North Rhine-Westphalian Eifel. The actual "White Stone", which gave the mountain its name, is a roughly three meter long rock in nearby Belgian territory. It is located in the middle of the moor and can be reached via a footbridge.
For the new observation tower, 4 solid Douglas firs with a trunk diameter of over 1 m and a height of over 40 m from local forests were used - the tower itself is 29.90 m high. The municipality of Hellenthal built the new observation tower together with the Nordeifel Nature Park. A unique panoramic view rewards those who climb the 147 steps.
A climate park with an exhibition hall on the subject of "Weather, Climate, People" was created next to the former tower. At the "Weißer Stein" there is a popular winter sports area with a ski and toboggan lift and a cross-country ski trail network of around 17 kilometers.
