Typical Eifel villages with their own charm and historical monuments, such as the beer mill, which was renovated with a lot of heart and soul, are passed. Level paths through the Eifel forests are replaced by many an incline - a thoroughly varied hiking experience.
A prominent point on the Eifelsteig and at a good halfway point of the Oberkail-Himmerod loop is Himmerod Abbey. A spiritual place that provides new strength and energy, whether you visit the monastery restaurant or take a break on the time-honored abbey grounds.
Along the Salm River, the trail leads along romantically narrow paths in the direction of Eisenschmitt. After a steep ascent, the reward soon follows - the picturesquely situated Frohnert Chapel, from which a magnificent panoramic view can be enjoyed.
