Nat'Our Route 6 – Kammerwald Forest


Share content:

Anyone starting out on the atmospheric Kammerwald forest route should not forget the fact that it winds along old smugglers’ paths, which still inspire a sense of adventure today. It is no use trying to suppress the secretive atmosphere of this forest, which belonged to the Count of Vianden until the end of the feudal age (1794). Huge oaks give the Kammerwald a fairytale feel. The Königseiche (royal oak), which at 350 years old is one of the oldest trees in the Western Eifel, still has a majestic aura about it with its 5-metre circumference and height stretching to 32 metres. The beautiful, wide valley of the Gaybach river has a very different kind of magic to offer. At the Scheierhaff, there is a wonderful view out onto Vianden castle on the other side of the Our.
