HIKING THROUGH IMPRESSIVE NATURAL LANDSCAPES

Share content:

The uplands between Aachen, Cologne, Koblenz and Trier are of interest for their varied landscape and cultural history. They offer the ideal setting for a hiking holiday.
Breathtaking natural landscapes are waiting to be discovered on a hiking tour of the Eifel! Visit the ancient beech and oak forest in the Eifel National Park, the high moorlands of the “Hohes Venn - Eifel” high fen natural park, the enormous reservoirs in the North Rhine-Westphalian Eifel region, the maars in the Volcanic Eifel natural  and geopark, the fertile “Bitburger Gutland” with its orchards, the wild, craggy rocky landscape of the Ferschweiler plateau and the wide open plateaux of the wild Islek region in the South Eifel natural park, or the East Eifel, once covered by glowing lava and still dominated today by volcanic cones and crater lakes. 

It’s well worth stopping along the way to visit the picturesque Eifel towns with historic town centres, half-timbered houses dating from the Middle Ages, Roman walls, rugged castles and splendid palaces. Another special experience for hiking enthusiasts!
The Eifel has many facets, and it’s worth considering hiking routes through both North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland Palatinate. A large number of trails are available to choose from when planning your tour.
