Heiden und Berg-Mähwiesen - Durch bunte Wiesen und Weiden im Ländchen

Hellenthal

Share content:

The tour leads on a three-kilometer circular route through the "Ländchen" area in the municipality of Hellenthal. In the heathland, the branches of the birch trees sway in the wind and mountain hay meadows in colorful bloom give off the sweet scent of hay in midsummer.

Nature conservation measures of the "LIFE + Alliance for Borstgrasrasen" project financed by the EU and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia have created these valuable habitats. The short walk can easily be extended to explore the “Wildenburger Ländchen” with the protected area “Manscheider Bachtal and Paulushof”.

Erftquelle

The "Erft" rises in the small village of Holzmülheim, directly below the Himberg. It flows from here in the direction of Bad Münstereifel until it flows into the Rhine after about 100 km near Neuss. The spring was framed with natural stones by the village community. There is also a small statue of St. John Nepomuk, who is venerated as a bridge saint and is supposed to protect against water hazards. In the immediate vicinity is a playground, where there are also barbecue facilities and a lawn for sunbathing. At events at the spring, there is the possibility of being baptised in the Erft and receiving the title of "Erft cadet".
