Rursee-Schifffahrt & Rursee-Bahn

Rursee-Schifffahrt & Rursee-Bahn


The three dams Rursee Schwammenauel, Obersee and Urftsee form the Eifel lake district. The white fleet of the Rursee Schifffahrt is at home here. Together with the Obersee, the 8 km² Rursee is about 20 km long. Go on board, let yourself be pampered in the on-board restaurant by the friendly staff of Rursee Schifffahrt. Afterwards, you can watch local birds in the sunshine on the upper deck and let your mind wander. Several moorings make it possible to interrupt, start or end the trip: During a boat trip on the Rursee, a near-natural bathing beach invites you in Schmidt-Eschauel. From the banks of the Kermeter, you can set off on a hike through the densely wooded Kermeter. Woffelsbach is a good place to stop for a bite to eat. Rurberg has a beautiful town centre.

The Rursee boat stops at the Rursee:

  • Schwammenauel
  • Eschauel
  • Kermeter
  • Woffelsbach
  • Rurberg (turning point of the Rursee round trip, connection to the Obersee and National Park Gate).

A trip on the Obersee is also recommended. Here the noiseless modern electric boats "St. Nikolaus" and the "Seensucht" run from or to Einruhr. A hiking trail leads from here to Vogelsang. Round trips to the Urftseemauer are also on the daily schedule. The stops at Obersee: -Einruhr -Rurberg -Urft dam The one-hour round trip with the "Rursee Bahn" to the spa town of Heimbach is also an experience. The journey takes you past the small reservoir, the Art Nouveau power station, the nearby Eifel National Park and the Landal holiday park to Schwammenauel. This train is particularly interesting for guests from the Netherlands and Belgium, as the "Rursee Bahn" has a direct train connection to Aachen-Düren-Heimbach.

The stops of the Rursee Bahn:

  • Schwammenauel
  • Hasenfeld, bus stop
  • Heimbach, railway station
  • Heimbach, town hall
  • Herbstbachtal/ National Park Gate
  • Jugendstil power station
  • Resort Eifeltor

Enjoy the view of the Rursee, relax in the wellness area or indulge in culinary delights on the large outdoor terrace. This is possible at the hotel "Der Seehof". From here, the Eifel National Park with its leisure activities is very close by.
