Die Frohnertkapelle, © Naturpark Südeifel - Thomas Urbany
  • Distance: 15.5 km
  • Duration: 5:0 h
  • Difficulty: medium



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.

Himmerod Abbey

Abtei Himmerod, © GesundLand Vulkaneifel

Pass through the gateway to the centuries-old Himmerod Abbey and discover a time that seems long forgotten. The thick walls and small monastery farms of the Cistercian Abbey in the Salm Valley give you contemplative moments in the middle of the GesundLand Vulkaneifel.
