Wildnis-Trail im Nationalpark Eifel

Wildnis-Trail im Nationalpark Eifel


The individual stages present the entire scenic diversity of the Eifel National Park. Rushing brooks, fragrant flowers, deep forests and wide panoramic views - that's how diverse and inspiring tomorrow's wilderness is. The route runs from the south of the large protected area near Monschau-Höfen to the north near Hürtgenwald-Zerkall.

The first stage from Höfen to Einruhr is not only the most challenging and longest route, but also the one with the most metres in altitude. Particularly attractive are the natural forest cell "Im Brand", the beginnings of the vast Dreiborn plateau, the adventurous high-level trail near Hirschrott and the idyllic Erkensruhr valley.

The second stage of the tour leads over narrow paths along the Obersee with wonderful views over the Dreiborn plateau and the lake landscape from Einruhr to Vogelsang and on to Gemünd.

On the third stage the Kermeter is wandered through. This part between Gemünd and Heimbach was the decisive reason for the designation of the National Park. Between the majestic, centuries-old beech trees you can feel the perfection and the everlastingness of nature.

The last and shortest stage of the wilderness trail runs from Heimbach to Zerkall. The picturesque Schlehbachtal valley is just as fascinating as the diverse mixed forest with its high stock of gnarled oaks.

You can then return to the starting point with the Rurtal-Bahn Railway and the Trail-Express, which brings the wilderness trail hikers back to Monschau-Höfen on advance booking.

The wilderness trial can also be booked as a package.
