Lookout point with a refuge and a wonderful view of Olef.

Winding paths lead through the forest in the Oleftal up to Kuckucksley.

From the rock ("Ley" means rock) mine has a beautiful view over the Oleftal and can take a first break in the small refuge.

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".
