The Chalk Eifel cycle route
The cycle route runs through the Ahbach valley to connect the Kyll and Ahl cycle routes. The tour leads to a part of the Eifel which has been dominated by chalk quarrying since the Roman times, and which has many different attractions to offer. Highlights on the Eifel cycle route are the European model town of Hillesheim, Burg Kerpen castle, the Kloster Niederehe monastery and the “growing” waterfall at Dreimühlen. On forest paths and on a disused railway track almost throughout, it crosses the water divide between the Ahr and Moselle basins without steep inclines. Combined with the Ahr, Moselle, Kyll and Rhine cycle routes, shorter and longer circular trips are possible between the Ahr, Rhine, Moselle and Kyll rivers.
