Nationalpark Eifel

Nationalpark Eifel


Set in a dramatic landscape of woods interspersed with water, the Eifel National Park will allow you to experience the fascinating natural diversity of a wilderness at first hand. For in this large protection area some 65 kilometres southwest of Cologne, nature has been left once more to its own eternal cycle of growth and decay.

Discover the primary forests of tomorrow. Wildcats and black storks live in the National Park, and researchers have shown that around 2,300 other endangered species of animals and plants are also at home here. Enjoy fantastic views over the Rur Lake, Obersee and Urft Lake reservoirs.

Put the pressures of every day life behind you as you hike through romantic stream valleys and impressive beech forests along the Wilderness Trail, for example. In spring you will be welcomed by carpets of glorious yellow wild daffodils. The Dreiborn plateau around Vogelsang is a highlight, and not only when the Common Broom (Cytisus scoparius) is in full bloom. In autumn, the stag rutting season is an experience not to be missed, and winter is a particularly good time to go looking for animal tracks.

No sooner have people left the horrors of the two world wars behind them than the next war is already looming - the Cold War.  These are the years of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the building of the Berlin Wall and nuclear armament.  The great powers USA and the Soviet Union threaten each other with ever more powerful nuclear weapons.  At any time the cold war can turn into a hot one.
